Annual Disability Polls for Indiana: 2007-2016
The annual Disability Poll was a joint project of the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, and Indiana Protection and Advocacy Services (now known as Indiana Disability Rights). The Center for Planning and Policy Studies at the Institute conducted the survey and prepared the report each year from 2007 to 2016.
What was the Indiana Disability Poll?
Each year, a topic of interest to the disability community was selected, and then an online survey was developed. Each Disability Poll was inaugurated at the annual Disability Conference in Indianapolis, where kiosks were set up to allow participants to complete the survey during the conference days. Following the conference, the Disability Poll was available online, and also in paper and other alternative formats. Results were announced in the spring/summer.

The Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities contracted with the Indiana Institute

disabilities in Indiana.
