Accounting for Recent Declines in Employment Rates Among Working-Aged Men and Women with Disabilities

Publication Abstract

Download PDF versionBound, John, and Timothy A. Waidmann. "Accounting for Recent Declines in Employment Rates Among Working-Aged Men and Women with Disabilities." PSC Research Report No. 00-460. 10 2000.

During the 1990s, while overall employment rates for working-aged men and women either remained roughly constant (men) or rose (women), employment rates for the disabled fell. During the same period the fraction of the working-aged population receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (DI) benefits increased quite dramatically. We present simple time series and cross-state evidence suggesting that the growth in the DI program can account for much of the decline in the relative employment position of the disabled.
