This book includes revised presentations from an October 2001 meeting of the National Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research and the Cornell Rehabilitation Research and Training Center that considered the validity of current data for measuring trends in the employment rate of people with disabilities and investigated the causes and consequences of the declining rate of employment shown in the data.

(Kruse, Schur); "Is It Time to Declare the ADA a Failed Law?"
