Across the States 2012 comes in two volumes:

  • A full report with an overview of key findings and trends, maps and  graphs, and individual profiles for each state, the District of  Columbia, and the nation as a whole. The full report provides a  comprehensive picture of long-term services and supports in each state.
  • An executive summary with an overview of key findings and trends,  and ranking tables for each indicator, such as percentage of Medicaid
