Wilson, Keith B.; Senices, Julissa
Journal of Counseling and Development, v83 n1 p86 Win 2005
Compared with other ethnic minorities in the United States, numbers for the Hispanic population are significantly escalating. In the study described here, a chi-square test of proportions was used to examine the vocational rehabilitation (VR) acceptance rates among Hispanics and non-Hispanics. The test statistic revealed a statistically significant difference between race/ethnicity and VR acceptance. In particular, Hispanics are more likely to be accepted for VR services than are non-Hispanics in the United States. Implications for VR counselors are discussed.
