2.      the most important and up-to-date findings on disability and employment;

3.      the most important U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and Census Bureau sources, and how to decide which source best meets your needs;

4.      live demos of the two principal Census Bureau customized data tools; and

5.      a preview of the soon-to-be-released BLS findings from its special 2012 disability employment survey.


ETA has also published several related disability employment data sources on our Labor Market Information WIN-WIN Network Community of Practice.


1.      Data Sources for Workers with Disabilities, a brief  (just over 2 pages) resource to make it easy for you to understand and locate employment data for persons with disabilities, focusing on sources that supply information on labor market hardship.


2.      Usual weekly earnings tables by disability status (for full-time employees — not all employees) — and also by age, gender, race, and Hispanic ethnicity, for 2009, 2010 and 2011. 


3.      The Special CPS Disability Supplement Questionnaire — the verbatim questions (which were summarized during the Webinar itself).
