From the Survey of State Developmental Disabilities (DD) Directors, University of Minnesota, 2009:
State DD Directors are asked to address the following categories by indicating the number of individuals who live in non nursing, congregate care settings that serve individuals with developmental and other disabilities.
Adults are considered to live in a large non-nursing congregate setting for people with developmental and other disabilities if the State DD director provides a count for the “16+ residents” category listed in the numerator section.
State DD Directors are asked to complete a form. 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.
