This chapter provides a broad overview of some important national datasets and how they can help inform research on the employment of individuals with disabilities. It first outlines a selected set of available national survey data sources that cover both employer practices and disability status, then presents a subset of sources that include demographic data on individuals, the disability status of individuals, and information on labor market outcomes including employer practices. The chapter discusses the difficulties in using such data sources and describes some novel efforts to take advantage of existing data sources in furthering the study of employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. Finally, this chapter describes some of the specific findings of empirical work that take advantage of the sources that have been previously described and collected.

Keywords:   national survey data, employment outcomes, employer practices, labor market outcomes, disability status
