New Hampshire

~~“Prevalence of Mobility and/or Cognitive Disabilities among NH Adults 18 and Older.

This report used pooled data from the 2013-2016 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). In the BRFSS, mobility and cognitive limitations are defined by two questions: 1. Do you have serious difficulty walking or climbing stairs? (“Mobility”); and 2. Because of a physical, mental, or emotional condition, do you have serious difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions? (“Cognitive”) BRFSS data is available on the CDC website via the Disability and Health Data System: https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/disabilityandhealth/dhds/index.html The NH Disability & Public Health Project (DPH) is funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cooperative agreement number 1NU27DD000007. DPH is a collaboration between the Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire and the NH Division of Public Health Services. The contents of this report are the responsibility of DPH staff and do not necessarily represent the views of the CDC or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.”
