Houtenville, A. J., Stapleton, D. C., Weathers, R. R. II, & Burkhauser, R. V. (Eds.). (2009). Counting working-age people with disabilities: What current data tell us and options for improvement. Kalamazoo: W. E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research.
One section of this chapter discusses shortcomings in statistical knowledge about disabilities. The book has whole chapters that address this and related topics, so I did not read this section in any detail. I was surprised, though, to see the authors praise the 2008 ACS as having “an improved set of disability questions” (p. 23). I had not thought that the new set of questions was better, but of course I was not the expert. So while I was not sure, at this point, that I would read those chapters in their entirety, I was interested to see what this book said about the new ACS.
