Research Brief

Employment Outcomes for People with Spinal Cord Injuries: Vocational Rehabilitation RSA 911 Closure Data FY 2011, 2012, and 2013

The intent of this research brief is to profile participation, services received, and outcomes achieved by individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) who were participants in State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) programs. Annually, each Vocational Rehabilitation Agency funded by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, submits to the Federal Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) a report, The RSA 911 Closure Report . Each 911 Report contains information on individuals who terminated Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) services during an identified Fiscal Year.
