Assessing the Need for a National Disability Survey: Final Report. B. Findings from a Review of National Surveys
Many existing national surveys collect disability-related information, and some do so in great detail. There is substantial variation across surveys in terms of target populations, the disability measures used, topics covered, frequency, and design. We provide an overview of the 40 national, federally-sponsored surveys we reviewed for this study,

This is the final report of a project that assesses the need for developing and fielding another national disability survey data collection effort. It presents the findings from three principal project activities designed to assess whether existing data are sufficient to answer key disability-related research questions identified by the staffs of
Homeless people have two compelling reasons to seek enrollment in Supplemental Security Income (SSI): (1) obtaining a reliable income source that will help them afford housing; and (2) increasing their access to appropriate health care through "categorical" eligibility for Medicaid for people who participate in SSI. 1 Housing and health care pr

Health, Housing, and Service Supports for Three Groups of People Experiencing Chronic Homelessness. 2.2. Likelihood of Being in Permanent Supportive Housing
In comparison to group membership in the overall population of chronically homeless people, group membership of tenants in PSH appears to be somewhat skewed toward those in Group 3, although the skew may not be very large in some jurisdictions.
This Issue Paper describes three subgroups of the people experiencing chronic homelessness, and the services and housing configurations currently supporting them.

Admission : Date at which an individual was reported to have been admitted to the institution for which a Medicaid claim has been paid. Admission may occur before the beginning of a Medi
These beneficiaries are also commonly called dual eligible. See Borck et al. (2013) or Kaiser Family Foundation (2010) for additional information about Medicaid-eligibility for individuals who are aged or have a disability.
This study focuses on understanding the rates and patterns of enrollment in Medicaid among individuals already enrolled in Medicare, the factors that predict this transition to dual coverage, and those that predict nursing home entry. This volume provides estimated econometric models that predict beneficiaries’ enrollment in Medicaid, and thei

Improving Employment Outcomes for People with Psychiatric Disorders and Other Disabilities. VII. Conclusion
Our literature review found that evidence-based SE provides the strongest evidence for helping people with SMI to find work, but there is little strong evidence for positive long-term outcomes. The absence of improved long-term outcomes may result from work disincentives built into Social Security disability and Medicaid programs that discourage m

Several federal agencies also offer sources of funding that may be used to directly provide SE to individuals with mental illness or otherwise encourage them to work. These include various block grants, VR and special education programs, VA services, and other demonstrations. 1. SAMHSA's Community Mental Health Services Block Grant

Improving Employment Outcomes for People with Psychiatric Disorders and Other Disabilities. A. Introduction
In this chapter, we describe the employment and program-participation patterns of people with disabilities before they applied for SSDI. ASPE is interested in understanding these characteristics so it can recommend policies and programs to help potential applicants remain in the workforce, thereby stemming the growth in the SSDI rolls.
