From the 2009 Survey of State Developmental Disabilities Directors:
Please indicate the number of individuals aged 22 and older who live in each of the following categories on non-nursing, congregate care settings that serve individuals with developmental and other disabilities.
State Developmental Disability Directors are asked to complete a form indicating how many individuals with developmental and other disabilities live in non-nursing congregate care facilities that serve persons with developmental and other disabilities. The information is abstracted and analyzed by investigators at the University of Minnesota and reported in Residential Services for Persons with Developmental Disabilities: Status and Trends.
Adults living in facilities with 16 or more residents are considered to live in large non nursing, congregate settings for people with developmental and other disabilities.
