Source: RSA state agency data from the RSA-911.

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: April 2006

Data Validated By: On-Site Monitoring By ED.
Verified by ED attestation process and ED Standards for Evaluating Program Performance Data.

Limitations: Accuracy/ consistency of reporting is contingent upon counselors' interpretations of definitions. Timeliness is dependent upon submittal of clean data from grantees.

Improvements: RSA staff have worked with grantees to improve the accuracy and timeliness of RSA-911 data. The FY 2004 database was available six months after the close of the fiscal year, a significant improvement over previous years.
 
Explanation: With this measure, RSA examines State agency performance regarding supported employment for individuals with the most significant disabilities. Individuals in supported employment can achieve competitive employment (with wages at or above the minimum wage), although not all individuals in supported employment do achieve these competitive wages.
