Trends in Employment Outcomes of Young Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2004–2012
Originally published: 7/2014
This report summarizes the employment and economic outcomes for young adults with intellectual disabilities between 2004 and 2012 in the nation’s 50 states and the District of Columbia (DC). Data are reported separately for two age groups: 16 to 21 years old, and 22 to 30 years old. The first age group includes young adults who may still be eligible for school services (through age 21), whereas the second age group includes young adults who have left the education system. Data are drawn from three sources: the American Community Survey (ACS), the Rehabilitation Services Administration 911 (RSA-911), and the National Core Indicators (NCI).
