We developed The Disability Community Progress Report because we believe that members of San Angelo's disability community are a vulnerable population that is at risk of falling through the cracks and experiencing exclusion from the community as institutions go about their daily operations. The report is an evidence-based overview of San Angelo's progress in addressing the social and economic needs of its disability community. The strength of The Disability Community Progress Report is that it goes beyond a single point-in time-snapshot of the community to review progress over time. It also compares San Angelo's disability community to the West Texas cities of Abilene, Midland, and Odessa, and to the State of Texas overall. All statistical data presented in this report originates from raw data produced by the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, 1-year samples for 2009 and 2015. Community Development Initiatives at Angelo State University computed all rates and percentages, and produced all graphic charts, presented in the report.
