Most people with intellectual or developmental disabilities live with their family throughout their lives.

Of those people, 58% lived in their own home or with one or two other people who also got supports, 25% lived in homes shared by 4 to 6 people, 10% lived in settings with 7 to 15 people, and 7% lived in institutions with 16 or more people.
