Chart Of The Day

Chart contents: Difficulty walking / climbing stairs 30.6 million, Require assistance of others for everyday tasks 12.0 million, Vision difficulty (partial or total) 8.1 million, Hearing difficulty 7.6 million, using a wheelchair 3.6 million, Alzheimers, senility or dementia 2.4 million.
Nice Census Bureau chart art on specific disability numbers. We need more visualizations like this related to disability.

One question though … Shouldn't there be another category for “Intellectual Disabilities”? “Alzheimers, senility or dementia” isn’t the same thing. Or, should it be?
