Surveys & Research
In 2013, Sirota and NOD published the results of a large scale effort to better understand the voice of employees with disabilities. Our goal has been to capture, assess and understand the workplace experiences of individuals with disabilities as they compare their experiences to non-disabled colleagues. An important aspect of this work is to chart survey responses throughout a five-year period to track changes and trends.
Summarizes NOD & Kessler survey on attitudes of human resources managers and senior executives on employment of people with disabilities and includes five steps to help with recruitment and retention of people with disabilities.
Survey identified participation gaps between people with and without disabilities, including employment, income, education, access to transportation and healthcare, political participation, life satisfaction, and technology. The report summarizes trend data that links 2010 data to earlier NOD surveys conducted by Harris.
The 2004 NOD-Harris Survey of Americans with Disabilities documented critical gaps between those with disabilities and the general population. Americans with disabilities are at a critical disadvantage compared to other Americans in ten key areas of life. Continuing a trend, the survey found slow and modest progress in the indicators.
In 2000 NOD commissioned a millennial edition of the omnibus Survey of Americans with Disabilities and a Survey of Community Participation to document data on disability and community life.
