Description

Using administrative data from the State of Washington, the study cross-walked Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit data with information on enrollment in other programs that may have identified participants as having a disability, such as vocational rehabilitation or Workforce Investment Act (WIA) programs in which individuals self-reported disability status. By cross-walking the data to Vocational Rehabilitation and WIA, the profile that was developed provided a sense of what portion of a state’s long-term unemployed may have had a disability.
