      "Disability is a complex concept and can include the presence of physical or mental impairments that limit a person's ability to perform an important activity and affect the use of, or need for, supports, accommodations, or interventions required to improve functioning. Information on disability in the U.S. population is critical to health planning and policy. Several current initiatives are under way to coordinate and standardize measurement of disability across federal data systems. This year's report introduces the first detailed trend table (Table 55) using data from the NCHS National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) to create disability measures consistent with two of the conceptual components that have been indentified in disability models and disability legislation: basic actions difficulty and complex activity limitation. Basic actions difficulty captures limitations or difficulties in movement and sensory, emotional, or mental functioning that are associated with some health problem. Complex activity limitation describes limitations or restrictions on a person's ability to participate fully in social role activities such as working or maintaining a household. Data on health insurance coverage from NHIS for persons with basic actions difficulty or complex activity limitation have been added to Tables 137-140. Health, United States also includes the following disability-related information for the civilian noninstitutionalized population: vision and hearing limitations for adults (Table 56), and disability-related information for Medicare enrollees (Table 144), Medicaid recipients (Table 145), and veterans with service-connected disabilities (Figure 3 and Table 147)." - p. iii-iv
