Project Number: p03-01c

The Impact of Changes in the Occupational and Industrial Mix Between 1970 and 2000 on the Employment of Persons With and Without Disabilities

Principal Investigators: Edward Yelin and Laura Trupin

Project Type: Core Research

Project Year: 03

Thematic Category: Economic Aspects of Disability

Project Summary:

The project is based on the observations of the investigator and others that changes in the nature of work itself affect the probability of employment among persons with disabilities. In the project, researchers focus on the impact of longer-term changes in the structure of the economy, particularly the shift over the past 30 years from an economy based on the production and distribution of goods to one based on services and information. The overarching aim is to evaluate the impact of changes in the distribution of occupations and industries between 1970 and 2000 on the employment situation of persons with disabilities. The project draws upon data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS).
