New Webpage of Stats on Disability, Work, and Maine

If you enjoy statistics, pie charts, graphs, and other representations of data about disability, demographics, and work in the state of Maine, then hurry over to the Center for Workforce Research and Information's "Maine Workers with Disabilities" page.

Information is broken down by age, county, disability type, gender, and more.

Maine's counties in different colors, ranging from dark blue (Cumberland) to medium blue (southern coast mostly) to light tan-orange (Oxford, Franklin, Kennebec, Penobscot, Somerset), to dark red and brown (Washinton, Aroostook, Piscataquis).
Counties in Maine show lowest disability rates  (dark blue) to highest disability rates (red/brown)
There's a short AP article in the Portland Press Herald about how this page was developed because of "concerns that there is not enough state-specific information" about unemployment and disability in Maine.
