Disability Statistics

Mobility Issues

A large and growing reality...

U.S. Census figures indicate an estimated 54 million Americans, or nearly 20% of the population has a disabliity. That figure is expected to increase as the population ages.

Based on these statistics, the following chart estimates the number of disabled people attending conventions or meetings.

This is a guideline only. Actual figures depend on the profiles of your delegates.

With the Americans With Disabilities Act and other disability rights legislation, convention and meeting planners alike are becoming more sensitive to the mobility concerns of their attendees.
