RISP Products and Publications
The Residential Information Systems Project is a longitudinal study of trends in residential service setting types, setting sizes, funding authorities, and expenditures for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the United States. The most recent report uses data from fiscal year 2019 (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019, for most states). RISP reports are downloadable in PDF format.
Other RISP project and related reports can be viewed in the Residential Information Systems Project Brief and Residential Information Systems Project Reports categories at the University of Minnesota's Digital Conservancy. Topics include Medicaid and Medicare long-term supports and services, public residential facility survey reports, deinstitutionalization, and staff stability.

Note on language: In earlier RISP products, we used the word "retardation" to refer to intellectual disabilities. Historically, this was common language in the profession and broader society. Because of its broad and common use, outdated language may also appear in other RISP products. The "R-word," as we understand it now, is an ableist slur. Our previous language does not reflect the RISP team's ongoing commitment to social inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
