RSA, Research and Statistics

For the purposes of improving program management and effectiveness, RSA evaluates all programs authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. For example, to assess linkages between vocational rehabilitation (VR) services and economic and non-economic outcomes, RSA is conducting a longitudinal study of a national sample of VR consumers. RSA may also disseminate information on exemplary practices concerning vocational rehabilitation. You may find many of those studies and projects and their results below. In this section readers will also find summary data and statistics describing the outcomes of various programs funded by RSA and, in particular, data on individuals with disabilities served and rehabilitated (including caseload data and client characteristics) through the Title I Basic Support Program. Program evaluation studies are also listed under Publications and Products.

  • Data Collection and Reporting Systems
    RSA has a number of on-line systems to collect and, in some cases, view information about rehabilitative services.
