2008 Disability Status Reports: United States
Erickson, William; Lee, Camille G.; von Schrader, Sarah
The Annual Disability Status Reports provide policy makers, disability advocates, reporters, and the public with a summary of the most recent demographic and economic statistics on the working-age (ages 21-64) population with disabilities. They contain information on the population size, prevalence, employment, earnings, poverty, household income, home ownership, and activity limitations of working-age people with disabilities, as well as the composition of this population by age, race, gender, and educational attainment. This year, for the first time, the report also includes information about health insurance coverage and veteran’s service-connected disability ratings
