The State of the States in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 11th Ed. is a thorough and one-of-a-kind analytical study of public spending and programmatic trends in intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) services across the United States.
In this 11th edition, extensive analyses are presented on each state’s performance over a period of 40 years, ending with fiscal year 2015. As in previous editions, this edition provides statistical profiles for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as for the country as a whole.
Data presented include:
- Out-of-home placements
- Federal, state, and local Medicaid spending
- Fiscal effort (a state’s spending for IDD services from federal, state, and local sources per $1,000 aggregate statewide personal income);
- Annual cost of care across years for individuals residing in five different settings
Authors predict future demographic and legal forces, implications of changes to Medicaid, and key challenges of the future.
