Jans, Lita; Stoddard, Susan
This publication provides information on women and disability in the United State and was created for use by both non-technical and technical audiences. It is intended to be used as a resource for agencies, employers, organizations, policymakers, researchers, and others concerned with the relationship between gender and disability. Seven sections address different aspects of women and disability, including: (1) women and disability throughout the life cycle; (2) children and youth with disability, including data on gender differences in special education; (3) disability, work, income, and benefits for women; (4) living arrangements, family life, and medical experiences; (5) mental disorders and disability and gender; (6) women, disability, and aging; and (7) research gaps and topics for further investigation. Each page within a section contains a topic question, explanatory text on the topic, and an explanatory graphic or table that provides data in an easy to read form. The source of the information and the survey used to collect the data appear at the bottom of the page. In many cases, information on relevant website addresses where more detailed information may be stored is included. An appendix contains technical summaries of key surveys. (CR)
