The mission of the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics (StatsRRTC) is to narrow and actively bridge the divide between the producers and end users of disability statistics, thereby supporting better data collection, more accurate information, better decision-making, more effective programs, and better lives for people with disabilities. Mathematica is supporting the University of New Hampshire and other partner agencies with eight research studies over five years. Three studies will focus on methods (such as an examination of changes in self-reported disability over time for youth and young adults), while five studies will focus on analysis (such as an estimate of fiscal year 2014 federal and state disability expenditures for children and working-age people with disabilities). In addition, we will provide support on various knowledge translation and dissemination tasks.
