Economics of Disability Research Report #2: Estimates of Employment Rates for Persons with Disabilities in the United States by State, 1980 through 1998
Houtenville, Andrew J.
This report uses data from the March Current Population Survey to estimate employment rates for persons with and without a disability in the non-institutionalized working-age (aged 25 through 61) civilian population in the United States, and for each state and the District of Columbia for the years 1980 through 1998. The employment rate of persons with a disability relative to that of persons without disabilities varies greatly across states. However, over the last 20 years the relative employment rate of those with a disability dramatically declined overall and in most states.
