Disability studies is highly interdisciplinary, and few databases center solely on disability studies. It may make sense to explore other LibGuides related to sociology, biology, gender and sexuality studies, and other topics of intersection. While there isn't a single periodical index, it's also recommended to peruse the disability studies journals listed above.
Disability and Health Data System (DHDS)
Disability and Health Data System (DHDS) is an interactive state-level disability data tool designed to assist partners, state health departments, national disability and health organizations, policymakers, researchers, educators, and others in the assessment of the health and wellness of people with disabilities. This tool was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the Division of Human Development and Disability (DHDD) at the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD).
DHDS provides data on health and demographic indicators using the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), and data on expenditures.
