RESEARCH AGENDA: Disability Data

Publication Date
Jul 31, 1995

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation sponsored an expert meeting to advise DALTCP on policy issues and available data related to several populations of persons with disabilities: working age adults, children, persons age 65 and older, and special populations (e.g., persons with developmental disabilities, persons with mental illness). The meeting focused on: (1) assessment of available data sets pertaining to persons with disabilities; (2) identifying usage state, area, and private data bases including data from large-scale demonstrations; (3) specifying next steps in accessing and analyzing available disability data; and (4) discussing a minimum set of disability-realted variables for inclusion in surveys.
