About This Data

Data for this dashboard are taken from the American Community Survey, an annual survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, providing the most recent information on employment and educational trends for deaf people in the United States. Survey respondents who stated that they were deaf, or had serious difficulty hearing, were used to represent the deaf population in these analyses. The 2022 sample included 44,276 deaf people, and the 5-year sample (2017-2021) used for state-level data included 404,256 deaf people. For more information, see our FAQs page.
