In the US, nearly 40MM people over the age of 15 self-identify as having a disability, representing 12.6% of the non-institutionalized population. Globally, an estimated 785MM (15%) to 975MM (19%) people over the age of 15 live with a disability — representing people with disabilities across difficulties with hearing, vision, cognition and/or mobility. Combined, people with a disability (PWD) control $8 trillion in annual disposable income.
