As state and federal policy makers and Community Service Providers work to refine the concept of Community Life Engagement, they are able to draw upon multiple, public, national data sources. These include:
- Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI)’s National Survey on Day and Employment Outcomes www.statedata.info
- National Core Indicators (NCI)
- ICI’s National Survey of Community Rehabilitation Providers
This brief provides an introduction to these data sources. It examines emerging Community Life Engagement trends shown in each source, as well as the implications for developing a better understanding of Community Life Engagement based on how it is currently being classified and measured. This brief is the second in a series on Community Life Engagement.
