Economics of Disability Research Report #3: Estimates of Median Household Size-Adjusted Income 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 median household size-adjusted income 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 median household size-adjusted income of persons with a disability relative to those of persons without a disability varies greatly across states. Since 1980, however, the growth in the median household size-adjusted income of those with a disability has fallen below that of the rest of the working population overall and in the vast majority of states.
