Center for Disability Research

The onset of a severe health impairment can alter the course of an individual's career, in many cases leading to an unexpected and substantial reduction in labor market activity and, ultimately, long-term claiming of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

The RAND Center for Disability Research (CDR) aims to better understand the social and economic causes and consequences of disability in the United States. Research themes include examining the roles of employers, healthcare markets, knowledge networks and social insurance programs such as SSDI.
