Abstract: The Social Security Administration has conducted a number of surveys designed to collect information on the prevalence of disability in the population and on the characteristics of the disabled. These surveys were designed to examine the economic, medical, and social consequences of disability on the disabled person and his family. The 1972 Survey of Disabled and Nondisabled Adults was the second national survey of the disabled conducted by the Social Security Administration. In contrast to earlier surveys, data were collected in personal interviews not only from disabled persons but also from the nondisabled, including the newly disabled and recovered disabled. The 1972 survey of Disabled Adults consisted of a sample of approximately 18,000 interviewed persons that were selected from the 1970, 5 percent sample questionnaires.
