From the Survey of State Developmental Disabilities (DD) Directors, University of Minnesota, 2005:
State DD Directors are asked to address the following categories by indicating the number of individuals aged 21 and younger who live in non-nursing congregate care settings that serve individuals with developmental and other disabilities in these categories.
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.
