CQL and The Arc have authored a technical report following the national study, that not only details the data and the resulting analysis, but also a number of recommendations for providing choices, options, and opportunities involving housing and community living.

Inside The National Housing Study

National Online Survey

The first part of this study included a national online survey of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and family members of people with IDD. The survey included both quantitative and qualitative items.

Group Activities

The second part of this study included in-person nominal group technique (NGT) sessions across Illinois. NGT includes structured brainstorming like a focus group, except it is more inclusive, accessible, and collaborative.
