A Follow-up Survey of Former Clients of the Minnesota Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. Minnesota Studies in Vocational Rehabilitation: XXVI. Bulletin 50.
Dawis, Rene V.; Lofquist, Lloyd H.
This study investigated the employment status of former clients whose cases had been closed in the fiscal years 1963 through 1967; 86 percent of those surveyed had been considered rehabilitated, i.e. gainfully employed, at the time of closure. Usable information was obtained by a mailed questionnaire from 3,977 of 6,435 former clients for whom correct addresses were available. It was found that rehabilitated clients: (1) showed an increase of 53 percent in their employment rate, (2) now held more professional, technical, managerial, clerical, and sales jobs than at closure, (3) in general, held no more than two jobs since closure on their cases, (4) were working full-time, that is, 35 hours or more, (5) had significantly fewer members on public assistance than before acceptance as clients, and (6) on the average, earned annual incomes that were only $450 lower than their coworker counterparts. The questionnaires used in this study are appended. (CH)
