Abstract

Longitudinal Study of the Vocational Rehabilitation Service Program Third Interim Report: How Consumer Characteristics Affect Access to, Receipt of, and Outcomes of VR Services. This report is the first in a series of four final reports and several research briefs that present the findings of the Longitudinal Study of the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services Program, a study that RTI is conducting for the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), U.S. Department of Education, under Contract No. HR92022001. The broad purpose of the study is to assess the performance of the state-federal VR services program in assisting eligible individuals with disabilities to achieve positive, sustainable economic and noneconomic outcomes as a result of their receipt of VR services. This report contains details of the services that VR consumers receive from VR and analyzes the relationships between receipt of those services and short- and longer-term economic and other outcomes.
