Data from the National Health Interview Survey indicated that ID prevalence in children under 18 years of age in the United States was % (Schieve et al., ).   Furthermore, among all disability types, the largest increases in prevalence occurred between persons aged 18–44 years and those aged 45–64 years (e.g., the prevalence of mobility disability was more than three times higher among persons aged 45–64 years compared with those aged 18–44 years).
