Note: People 16 years old and older are considered to have a go-outside-home disability if they report one or more of the following lasting for 6 months or more: difficulty going outside the home alone to shop or visit a doctor's office. Employment refers to civilians 16 years old and older who do any work at all during the week as paid employees, work in their own business, farm, profession, or work 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in a family business or farm. Employed does not refer to people who work only around their own house, work as unpaid volunteers, or are on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces.

To calculate the percent of those employed (or not employed) with a go-outside-home disability by state, divide the number of those employed (or not employed) for a particular state by the total number of people reporting a go-outside-home disability in the same state and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of those employed with a go-outside-home disability in Georgia. This calculation would be: 12,982/35,561=.3651 and .3651x100=36.51%
