VR Rehabilitation Rates of People with Mental Retardation/Developmental Disabilities (MR/DD) in 2005
DataNote 11, 2007
Originally published: 6/2007
Of the over 48,000 persons nationwide with mental retardation or other developmental disabilities (MR/DD) who closed out of the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) system after receiving employment services in FY2005, more than half were successful closures, yielding a rehabilitation rate of 56.9%. This rehabilitation rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful closures, which is employment in any setting with the exception of sheltered workshops, by the total number of closures who received employment services.
The rehabilitation rate for closures with MR/DD FY2005 is similar to the rate for FY2004 (55.6%). State rehabilitation rates for case closures with MR/DD ranged from 29.3% in Oklahoma to 78.3% in Maryland. The rehabilitation rate for VR closures without MR/DD (58%) was similar to the rate for persons with MR/DD.
