Hi,

Sharing some Quick Statistics.  Source:  www.disabilitystatistics.org

(ages 21 to 64) with a disability in MI was 12.7 percent"

"In other words, in 2011 722,800 of the 5,678,800 individuals ages 21 to 64

"In MI in 2011, among the six types of disabilities identified in the ACS,
the highest prevalence rate was for "Ambulatory Disability," 6.9 percent. 
The lowest prevalence rate was "Visual Disability," 2.0 percent."
