Disability Decline: What We Know and What We'd Like To Know

Friday, November 30, 2001


This workshop engaged leading scholars in an exploratory discussion of the characteristics, causes, and consequences of disability decline in the U.S., specifically investigating what was known about disability trends and what should be learned from future research. The workshop identified agreed-on research findings related to disability trends; identified areas of ambiguity or disagreement; and, developed foci for future investigations.
