and Disability Status, 2010

Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey data from 2010 show that Alaskans aged 18 and over who experience a disability (i.e., limited in any way in any activities because of physical, mental or emotional problems) have a significantly lower annual income than those not experiencing a disability. Nearly half of the BRFSS respondents who earn less than $15,000 per year experience a disability.
