Disability and social participation: The case of formal and informal participation
Shandra, Carrie. Social Science Research, 2017.
People with disabilities in the United States experience lower levels of social integration than people without disabilities. This study uses data from the 2009–2015 Volunteer Supplement of the Current Population Survey to evaluate how working-aged adults with sensory disabilities, cognitive disabilities, physical disabilities, or multiple disabilities access, participate in, and maintain volunteer roles.
