Methodology Notes

Data come from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Data System, administered by the Department of Education, Office of Special Education. Data are based on counts of the number of students with disabilities as specified in the numerator and denominator definitions. Data are aggregated by states and territories for a total of 57 entries (50 states plus DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, N. Marianas, Bureau of Indian Affairs). Thus specific population or demographic data are unavailable (i.e. data by gender, race-ethnicity).
