The Economic Impact of an Expanded Program of Vocational Rehabilitation.
Wright, George N.; Reagles, Kenneth W.
Through an analytic technique this monograph studies the economic impact of the ratio of benefits to costs of the vocational rehabilitation process. The primary purpose of the research was to compare the relative value of the rehabilitation for the culturally disadvantaged to that of the medically disabled by benefit-cost analysis. The results of the study confirm the effectiveness of the public rehabilitation process, which can also be effective with the culturally disadvantaged, when the counselor focuses on their vocational adjustment. The present study presents dramatic evidence of the viability of a working plan in which social and rehabilitation service agencies can work together to deal with the problem of cultural disadvantagement.
