Accounting for Recent Declines in Employment Rates Among the Working-Aged Disabled

Publication Abstract

Bound, John, and Timothy A. Waidmann. 2002. "Accounting for Recent Declines in Employment Rates Among the Working-Aged Disabled." Journal of Human Resources, 37(2): 231-250.

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 men and women with disabilities
