Disability Statistics

Cornell University's Employment and Disability Institute provides national and state statistics that link employment and disability on its Disability Statistics website. Statistical categories include employment rates, earnings, SSI, educational attainment, veterans, poverty, health insurance coverage, household income and more.

The website also contains a Rehabilitation Data Directory that provides basic summaries and full profiles of 21 large administrative and research datasets. A new data set, the Disability and Compensation Cross-Dataset Variable Catalog, contains information on over 1,800 variables related to disability and employer practice from eleven major national surveys and administrative data sets.

If additional statistics are needed, technical assistance is available through the website, or by email at disabilitystatistics@cornell.edu.
