As announced by Research in Disability:

“We hope you will join us in person or online for the Release of the Annual Disability Statistics Compendium on February 11, 2020 in Washington, DC. The Annual Disability Statistics Compendium provides national and state-level statistics on people with disabilities and the government programs that serve the population with disabilities. Our annual event is designed to share what we learned during the year and highlight data from Federal partners. This year we also have two special panels: rural disability statistics, and opioid use and behavioral health for people with disabilities. [ANCOR note: the event will be both in-person and broadcast via webinar.] Register here.
