Summary and analysis of American Community Survey (ACS) 2022 data on the U.S. population of people with combined hearing and vision loss. For the purposes of these data summaries, a person with “combined hearing and vision/dual sensory loss,” refers to people who self-reported “yes” on the American Community Survey to BOTH of the following questions: (1) Is this person deaf or does he/she have serious difficulty hearing? (2) Is this person blind or does he/she have serious difficulty seeing even when wearing glasses? This data was compiled by request of HKNC in March 2024 by Stacia Bach, Nathan Thomas, and Megan Henly of the University of New Hampshire’s Institute on Disability. Percentage comparisons significant at the p<.0001. Extracted from the American Community Survey 2022 5-year and 1-year data, via IPUMS at the University of Minnesota.
