Counting Working-Age People with Disabilities: What Current Data Tell Us and Options for Improvement
AbstractWorking-age people with disabilities are often overlooked in discussions of the latest statistics on employment, income, poverty, and other measures. This book reviews what current data on this population can and cannot tell us, as well as how data quality can be improved to better inform policy. The authors argue that better coordination of independent efforts can be accomplished by the use of common disability-related questions on existing survey data sets; expansion and improvements to the matching of administrative records across agencies; and easier access to matched data for the broader research community.
