PopCapPopCap Games has been surveying casual gamers to learn more about what makes them click. In it's latest study, PopCap determined that disabled people are more likely to be casual gamers than the general population.
PopCap Games commissioned a study by the Information Solutions Group that used online surveys to collect data on 2,728 respondents between April 2 and April 17 of 2008. The survey concluded that 20.5% of respondents had a disability (nearly half with ADD/ADHD), compared to 15.1% of the general U.S. population. Gamers with disabilities also played more frequently and longer.

The study defined a disabled person as "one who has a significant medical condition or a physical, mental, developmental or learning impairment/disability. This includes, but is not limited to, medical conditions that affect mobility, vision, hearing and learning. It also includes chronic diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome; mental disorders, such as depression or anxiety; and developmental disabilities, such as ADD/ADHD (recently re-diagnosed as AD/HD – Predominantly Inattentive Type), dyslexia and autism."
