Data & Research EVALUATION OF PROGRAMS
RSA Program Data 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 can 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.

For information regarding data that is collected via sources other than those listed below, please contact RSA directly by calling RoseAnn Ashby at 202-245-7258.

They also provide financial breakdowns of expenditures by vocational rehabilitation agencies as well as information on referrals sources, services provided to individuals, counselor caseloads and eligibility rates. The first 15 tables cover consumer information and the remaining 7 cover information on VR agency expenditures. The information is from the RSA-2, RSA-113, and RSA-911.
