This paper examines two fundamental questions related to measuring the employment outcomes of people with disabilities. First, can a reasonable operational definition of disability be developed from current surveys that will enable policy makers to track the size and employment outcomes of that population? And if yes, are the findings sensitive to alternative definitions of disability and employment?
