A new manuscript by Drs Debra Brucker and Andrew Houtenville, People with Disabilities in the United States has been accepted for publication by the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Abstract
A recent compilation of published disability statistics available for the United States (U.S.) showcases the pervasive and persistent disparities that exist between people with and without disabilities across multiple fronts, including employment, earnings, poverty, and participation in safety net programs. Understanding the relevance of these statistics within the current policy environment can help guide further innovations to improve the lives of persons with disabilities in the U.S.
