Finding disability data.. Understanding disability statistics.. Contact us.. Resources.. Search.. The Disability Statistics Center produces and disseminates policy-relevant statistical information on the demographics and status of people with disabilities in American society.. The Center's work focuses on how that status is changing over time with regard to employment, access to technology, health care, community-based services, and other aspects of independent living and participation in society.. The Center is based at the Institute for Health and Aging at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).. It receives funding from the.. National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).. What's New.. Forum on unmet need for personal assistance services.. The Disability Statistics Center and the new.. Center for Personal Assistance Services.. co-sponsored the Tenth National Disability Statistics and Policy Forum in Washington, DC, on October 27, 2003.. This year's Forum focused on Unmet Need for Personal Assistance Services: Prevalence, Consequences, Costs, and Policy Options.. Researchers, policymakers, PAS users, long-term care providers, and others gathered to discuss results of recent studies on adults with unmet needs, and to plan how to translate the findings into concrete policy steps.. Unmet need is a critical issue for PAS users.. Researchers Mitch LaPlante, H.. Stephen Kaye, Taewoon Kang, and Charlene Harrington at the Disability Statistics Center presented results of  ...   The shortfall in needed hours of help is twice as great for people who live alone as for people who live with others.. Among people with unmet need, those who live alone are more likely to experience adverse consequences than people who live with others, but both groups fare worse than those whose needs are met.. Other presenters at the Forum explored causes of unmet need.. Susan Allen of Brown University presented her research on predictors of unmet need for PAS, and discussed individual and environmental factors related to unmet need.. Charlene Harrington of UCSF presented findings from a national survey of state Medicaid policies, focusing on selected indicators of unmet need.. Finally, a panel discussion with Josh Wiener, Judy Feder, Mary Giliberti, and Alfred DeGraff offered diverse views on what can be done to target unmet need in long-term care.. Center for Personal Assistance Services.. DSC researchers have key roles in the new.. , also based at UCSF.. The Center will conduct research, training, dissemination and technical assistance on a broad spectrum of PAS issues, including:.. The relationship between formal and informal PAS and caregiving support, and the role of assistive technology (AT) in complementing PAS;.. Policies and programs, barriers and new models for PAS in the home and community;.. Workforce development, recruitment, retention, and benefits; and.. Workplace PAS models that eliminate barriers to formal and informal PAS and AT at work.. Charlene Harrington is Principal Investigator of the Center, and DSC researchers Mitch LaPlante, H.. Stephen Kaye, and Robert Newcomer will serve as co-investigators..

  • Title: UCSF - Disability Statistics Center - Finding disability data on the Web
    Descriptive info: > Finding disability data on the Web.. Finding disability data on the Web.. Statistical data sources on disability.. This discussion is meant to help users who are beginning to use disability statistics or who want a clearer understanding of data sources.. The most often-used sources of disability statistics in the U.. are those based on large-scale surveys conducted by the federal government.. These surveys are intended to help guide policy decisions of various federal agencies.. They also offer researchers, advocates, local policy-makers, and others valuable data they can use to identify needs, create programs to meet those needs, and shape proposals for improving policies.. One advantage of these large scale federal surveys is their reliability, since they are nationally representative and involve relatively large samples of households or individuals.. Another advantage is the availability of the data they yield.. All the major surveys done by the federal government maintain their own Web sites, providing information for a wide range of users.. Typically, this includes data summaries, descriptions of the survey design and content, explanation of the sampling and weighting strategies used, the survey instruments themselves, publications, and availability of micro-level data.. Micro-level data and aggregate data.. Nearly all federally-sponsored surveys that deal with disability-relevant data allow users to download data sets directly from the surveys' Web sites.. Surveys usually also make these data sets available on CD-ROM as well.. Some Web sites, such as the U.. Census and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, provide aggregate data in the form of prepared charts and summary tables.. They also allow users to specify the geographic, demographic, and other variables of interest.. Depending on the user's information needs and skill in doing statistical analysis, either aggregate data or analysis of micro-level data may be more appropriate.. Micro-level data sets.. include data on each individual or household surveyed, with codes (usually numbers) representing the response for each question the person is asked.. The  ...   of sampling error.. These procedures are meant to provide reliable inferences about an entire population based on data collected from the sample, or set of samples, surveyed.. Aggregate data provide estimates of selected characteristics of the entire population surveyed (for example, how many people in the U.. have a disability) or a specific sub-set of the population (for example, the proportion of working-age women with disabilities who have college degrees).. Aggregate data are frequently used to describe trends over specific time periods (for example, how the employment rate for people with disabilities has changed from year to year since 1994).. As noted earlier, the Web sites of many federally sponsored surveys provide aggregate data on their Web sites in the form of tables, graphs, or maps.. One limitation of these prepared aggregate data is that they might not use all the variables of interest to the user.. Major statistical data sources on disability.. U.. disability data..

  • Title: UCSF - Disability Statistics Center - U.S. Decennial Census / Supplementary Surveys / American Community Survey
    Descriptive info: >.. > U.. Decennial Census / Supplementary Surveys / American Community Survey.. Decennial Census / Supplementary Surveys / American Community Survey.. Sponsoring agency and purpose of the survey.. The Census Bureau, U.. Department of Commerce, conducts these surveys.. The original activity of the.. Decennial Census.. was to count the population of the United States, in order to meet a Constitutional mandate for determining how many seats in the U.. House of Representatives would be allocated to each state.. Over the years, the uses of the Census have grown.. Results of the Census are now used to determine how federal funds will be distributed, to draw state legislative districts, and to plan and evaluate federal programs, among other uses.. The.. Supplementary Surveys.. are administered to a nationally representative sample of U.. households to test and improve data collection procedures for the next Decennial Census.. It is also part of the development effort for the.. When fully implemented, the American Community Survey will sample 3 million households each year to gather detailed, up-to-date data on demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics, including disability data.. Who is included in the survey.. The Decennial Census is unique in that it attempts to gather basic data on every individual residing in the U.. , including those in institutions.. It gathers more detailed data, including disability data, on a sample of about one in six households.. The Supplementary Surveys and American Community Survey gather data only from a sample of the non-institutionalized population.. How often the survey is conducted.. The Census is conducted every ten years.. Supplementary Surveys have been conducted in 2000, 2001, and 2002.. The American Community Survey started its demonstration phase in 1996 and has been conducted annually.. When the American Community Survey is fully implemented (pending Congressional funding), it will provide annual up-to-date information of the type that was provided in the "long form" in Census 2000 and previous decennial censuses.. This will make use of a "long form" in future decennial censuses unnecessary.. How the survey is conducted.. 2000 Census.. involved administration of two sets of questionnaires: a "short form" administered to every household surveyed, and a "long form" administered to a sample of about one of every six households.. Occupants of validated addresses obtained questionnaires through delivery by the U.. Postal Service (about 80% of households) and by picking the questionnaires up and community-based locations.. Completed questionnaires were mailed in to the Census Bureau.. Census workers followed up with non-responders through phone calls and personal visits.. When a personal interview was required for completion of the long form, Census workers entered responses on a paper copy.. The overall response rate nationwide was 67%.. For the.. and the.. , questionnaires were sent to all households in the sample, and completed questionnaires were mailed back in to the Census Bureau.. Census interviewers followed up with non-responders through Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI).. Finally, Census workers made personal visits to a sample of the households that had not completed either written questionnaires or a telephone interview.. Census workers used Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) to obtain information during these visits.. If an interview could not be done because the housing unit turned out to be vacant, the Census worker tried to get basic information about the unit from knowledgeable sources.. Sample size.. The Census attempts to gather basic data on every individual residing the 50 states and the District of Columbia.. The 2000 Census counted 281,421,906 individuals.. Through use of the "long form," the Census gathered more detailed data, including information on disability, from about one in every six households.. The Census 2000 Supplementary Survey and the 2001 and 2002 Census Supplementary Surveys were administered to a sample of 700,000 households in 1,203 counties throughout the country..  ...   form asks respondents to answer yes or no to each part of questions 16 and 17, for each member of the household:.. Does this person have any of the following long-lasting conditions?.. Blindness, deafness, or a severe vision or hearing impairment?.. A condition that substantially limits one or more basic physical activities such as walking, climbing stairs, reaching, lifting, or carrying.. Because of a physical, mental, or emotional condition lasting 6 months or more, does this person have any difficulty in doing any of the following activities:.. Learning, remembering, or concentrating?.. Dressing, bathing, or getting around inside the home?.. (Answer if the person is 16 YEARS OLD OR OVER: ) Going outside the home alone to shop or visit a doctor's office?.. (Answer if the person is 16 YEARS OLD OR OVER: ) Working at a job or business?.. The long-form questionnaires in the 1970, 1980, and 1990 decennial censuses also included questions about disability, though these differed substantially from the questions asked in Census 2000.. The Census Supplementary Surveys and the American Community Survey use the same questions used in Census 2000 to ask about disability.. Limitations of the data.. The 2000 Census over-counted the number of people with disabilities who have difficulty going outside the home or working.. Although the 2000 Census long form and the Census Supplementary Surveys used the same set of questions to measure disability, the 2000 Census counted a much higher number of people with disabilities.. The 2000 Census counted 49.. 8 million people with disabilities, or 19.. 3% of the civilian non-institutionalized population aged 5 and over.. However, the Census Supplementary Surveys show that only 39.. 6 million people have disabilities, or 15.. 6% of the population.. Using an item-by-item comparison of the results of the two surveys, the Disability Statistics Center found that the discrepancy stems from the two questions about going outside the home (Question 17c) and working at a job or business (Question 17d).. The Census yielded a much higher proportion of people answering "yes" to these questions than the Census Supplementary Surveys did.. This was an artifact stemming from a problem in interviewing procedures in the 2000 Census, a problem which was not present in the Census Supplementary Surveys..

  • Title: UCSF - Disability Statistics Center - Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP)
    Descriptive info: > Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP).. Sponsoring agency and purpose of the survey.. The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is sponsored by the.. Census Bureau.. Its purpose is to collect information on source and amount of income, labor force participation, program participation and eligibility data, and general demographic characteristics of individuals and households in the U.. SIPP data are used to measure the effectiveness of government programs, to estimate future costs and coverage for these programs, and to provide improved statistics on the distribution of income in the U.. Who is included in the survey.. The survey covers the non-institutionalized, civilian population in the U.. How often the survey is done.. The SIPP is a longitudinal study of a nationally representative set (panel) of U.. households.. The SIPP is done periodically.. When SIPP completes its series of interviews with one panel, the old panel is discontinued and a new one is introduced for the next SIPP.. The frequency of the interviews has changed over time since SIPP was first completed in 1983.. For the 2001 panel, households will be interviewed nine times from February 2001 through January 2004.. The panel is split into four groups, each of which is interviewed in a different month over a period of four consecutive months.. Each round of interviews that covers the entire panel in this four-month period is called a wave.. In each wave, households are asked to provide information about the four months since the previous interview.. All household members age 15 and older are interviewed by personal visit and decentralized telephone contact.. SIPP interviews in the 1996 panel and later were conducted using a computer-assisted interview on a laptop computer.. Proxy responses are allowed when household members are not available.. Sampling strategy.. The current SIPP (2001-2004) panel consists of 36,700 households, and the 1996 panel had an initial sample size of 40,188 households.. Earlier iterations of the SIPP involved much smaller sample sizes, due in part to budgetary constraints.. The SIPP includes questionnaire that asks about labor force participation, program participation, health insurance, education, income, and assets.. These are repeated in each interviewing wave.. The core questionnaire is somewhat different for each of the SIPP panels.. corea.. In addition, the SIPP topical that gather information on certain subjects in greater depth than the core questionnaire.. These modules are not used in every interviewing wave; sometimes they are administered in only one or two waves.. Each module  ...   been provided.. The SIPP takes a functional approach to disability through questions about how the respondent is limited in doing certain physical or mental activities.. One interpretation of SIPP data has used a multifaceted definition of disability based on a number of criteria and combinations of criteria.. For the 1996 SIPP, McNeil (1997) counted people as having a disability if they met any of the following criteria.. Used a wheelchair, a cane, crutches, or a walker;.. Had difficulty performing one or more functional activities;.. Had difficulty with one or more activities of daily living;.. Had difficulty with one or more instrumental activities of daily living;.. Had one or more specified conditions (a learning disability; mental retardation or another developmental disability, Alzheimer's disease, or some other type of mental or physical condition);.. Had any other mental or emotional condition that seriously interfered with everyday activities;.. Had a condition that limited the ability to work around the house;.. For persons ages 16 thru 67, had a condition that made it difficult to work at a job or business;.. Received federal benefits based on inability to work.. The SIPP has a history of poor test-retest reliability (McNeil, 2001), with disability measures being answered differently by the same people or their proxies at different times.. For example, a majority of persons who report being unable to see the words in a newspaper are later reported as having no visual impairments when interviewed again a year or two later.. Or, as the Disability Statistics Center found in an analysis of the 1996 SIPP panel, 40% of children reported as having special education services in one wave are later reported as never having used special education services.. The SIPP's lack of reliability has caused most researchers to avoid using this survey.. Products:.. The Census Bureau releases data periodically in cross-sectional, topical module, and longitudinal reports.. It also releases public use files containing the core data on income recipiency and program participation.. The core questionnaires and topical modules are also available on-line..

  • Title: UCSF - Disability Statistics Center - Current Population Survey (CPS)
    Descriptive info: > Current Population Survey (CPS).. The Current Population Survey is a monthly longitudinal survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census for the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.. Department of Commerce.. Its purpose is to provide information on the labor force characteristics of the U.. population.. The CPS provide estimates of employment, unemployment, earnings, hours of work, and other indicators.. In March of each year, a supplement called the Annual Demographic Supplement is added to the basic CPS.. This is the part of the CPS that is of most interest to disability statistics researchers.. The March supplement collects data on work experience, income, non-cash benefits, and migration, as well as basic monthly demographic and labor force data.. The basic monthly CPS is a nationally representative sample of the civilian non-institutionalized, resident population of the U.. The March supplement also includes members of the armed forces residing with their families in civilian housing or on military bases.. The CPS is a monthly panel survey that includes about 50,000 households each month.. The sample includes eight panels, with a new panel brought into rotation each month.. In each panel, households are interviewed once a month for four months in a row, and again for the same four calendar months of the following year.. For the first month's interview, the interviewer visits the address selected for the survey to determine if a responsible adult will provide the necessary information.. If someone at the address agrees to an interview, the interviewer uses a laptop computer to conduct the interview.. Interviewees in each household are asked to provide information about themselves and other household members age 16 or older.. The fifth interview is also done in person most of the time.. Interviews in the other six months are done by telephone.. The CPS uses a complex stratified sampling technique that identifies 754 geographic sample areas and then selects clusters of housing units  ...   Mobility.. Work experience.. Work schedules.. Other supplements have covered:.. Race and ethnicity.. Voting and registration.. School enrollment.. Food security.. Computer ownership.. Fertility and Marital History.. Fertility and Birth expectations.. Because CPS is a longitudinal survey, data from two different supplemental surveys administered to the same panel can be linked.. The Disability Statistics Center linked the 1998 Computer and Internet Use Survey with the March 1999 supplement to yield information on Computer and Internet Use Among People with Disabilities.. The March supplement uses a work limitation definition of disability, asking:.. Q59a (Do you/Does anyone in this household) have a health problem or disability which prevents (you/them) from working or which limits the kind or amount of work (you/they) can do?.. Yes.. No.. People whoare counted as having disabilities.. yesanswer.. The basic monthly survey has no real measure of disability status.. One of the CPS labor force categories, "disabled," identifies people who volunteer that disability is the reason that they are not in the labor force, and then state that they would be unable to take any kind of job during the coming six-month period.. The CPS has been widely criticized both for the lack of any real disability measure in the basic monthly survey and the March supplement's use of an unvalidated work disability measure, which limits the usefulness of the survey for employment analyses.. People with disabilities that do not limit work are not included, nor are those who might otherwise be limited but have received accommodations that enable them to work without limitation.. *..
