Chartbook on Work Disability in the United States.
Kraus, Lewis E.; Stoddard, Susan
This chartbook presents, in graphic and textual form, data on employment and disability in the United States. Each page contains a topic question, a brief explanatory text (using data from the original source), an explanatory graphic, identification of the source of the information, and identification of the survey used to collect the data. The 38 topic questions are grouped into six sections which provide information on: (1) the extent of work disability; (2) characteristics of persons with a work disability; (3) causes of work disability; (4) work disability and the labor force; (5) work disability, income, and earnings; and (6) support for people with a work disability. A glossary provides definitions of 19 work-related terms. A bibliography of 30 items and an appendix providing summaries of the surveys providing the data are included. (DB)
