Jung, Youngoh; Bellini, James
Center on Human Policy, Law, and Disability Studies
This descriptive population study was prepared to provide descriptive analysis of the population of vocational rehabilitation (VR) consumers with HIV/AIDS in the years 2002-2007, with comparisons made to the population estimates for numbers of persons identified as living with HIV/AIDS and comparison to the larger population of VR service applicants with various disabilities in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The primary purpose of this report was to contribute key descriptive data to rehabilitation professionals, rehabilitation researchers, and policy makers regarding access to and participation in the VR Program as well as employment outcomes of persons living with HIV/AIDS. Ultimately, by providing these benchmark data, the authors hope that the population with HIV/AIDS will have greater access to and participation in the VR Program and will receive more appropriate, effective vocational services in the future. Estimated number of unemployed persons with HIV/AIDS based on state unemployment rate (%) is appended. (Contains 38 tables, 33 figures and 4 data resources.)
