Trends in Supported Employment: The Experiences of Ninety-Four Community Rehabilitation Providers from 1986 to 1991

This fact sheet summarizes data on integrated employment (supported and competitive) and facility-based employment activities (sheltered workshops) from two national surveys of community rehabilitation providers (CRPs). These surveys were part of an ongoing national data collection project that addresses trends in day and employment services for people with disabilities. The 1986 survey used a random sample from all states while the 1991 survey used a stratified sample of 20 states. Of the 952 CRPs which responded to the 1986 survey and the 643 to the 1991 survey, 94 CRPs responded to both. The following presents some key findings from these CRPs.
