U.S. census and disabled adults : the 50 states and the District of Columbia by Frank Bowe( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes and presents information from the 1980 Census of Population and Housing and offers state-by-state breakdowns of data on the disabled population. The 50 states and the District of Columbia are divided among 10 regions. Each state is described in terms of population size, proportions of the working-age population that are disabled, labor force participation rates among disabled adults, variations between disabled males and females on employment-related indices, interactions between race and disability, and the prevalence of transportation disabilities in the working-age and over-65 populations. Twenty figures illustrate proportions of working age population reporting one or more disabilities and labor force participation by working-age disabled persons for the states within each region. Thirteen tables, all broken down state-by-state, depict proportions disabled, labor force participation rates, proportions disabled and prevented from working, disabled males, disabled females, white disabled males, white disabled females, black disabled males, black disabled females, Hispanic disabled males, Hispanic disabled females, and transportation disabilities. The book is intended to assist rehabilitation, special education, vocational education, and employment personnel to plan better services for disabled individuals. (Ylb)

Demography and disability : a chartbook for rehabilitation by Frank Bowe( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on data concerning disabilities that were obtained from the 1981 and 1982 Current Population Surveys (cps), it appears that the average working-aged disabled American is about 50 years old, has a high school education, is not in the labor force, and subsists on a low level of income. Also evident is the fact that disability is much more common among Blacks than among Whites or Hispanics, more common among males than among females, and more common among persons with low education and income levels than among those with higher levels of schooling and income. Furthermore, disabled persons tend to reside in the South. These data have a number of implications for vocational rehabilitation program administrators. For example, rehabilitation should place more emphasis on recruiting those persons who become disabled while working into the federal and state partnership program and should begin to provide more service for older disabled individuals. For most disabled persons of working age, the major need is for retraining rather than for basic training. Particularly in need of training are women and Blacks with disabilities. Perhaps the most encouraging news from the 1981 and 1982 cps is that full-time employed disabled persons earn almost as much as do full-time workers with no disabilities. (Mn)
Employment trends, 1984 and beyond : where the jobs will be by Frank Bowe( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph identifies the five broad areas in which the author believes disabled people are especially likely to find employment in the years ahead. It answers, as far as can be foreseen, the question, "Where are the jobs?" The book is organized into six chapters. In the first chapter, the author examines social science research on the job market and gives some reasons why predicting employment trends is so difficult. In the second chapter, he presents his view on what is not going to happen in the next 10 years or so. For example, he does not believe that computer repair and programming occupations are going to increase significantly. Chapter 3 explores the area of "pocket marketing," a theory that suggests that even in times of high unemployment, areas of opportunity exist, whether in certain geographic areas or in meeting specific unmet needs. These "pockets" could generate jobs for disabled people. The fifth chapter details the five areas of opportunity that the author predicts will provide jobs for handicapped people. The areas explained and focused on are general services, special services, sales, information services, and entrepreneurship. In the fifth chapter, the author matches these five areas to the personal characteristics needed for each type of work. The final chapter offers suggestions for actually making the scenario happen. The chapter outlines the kinds of steps that need to be taken by disabled people themselves, service agencies, other government agencies, and employers in order to put disabled persons to work in the five areas.
