Measure: Percent of working age people on the disability waivers who have monthly earnings.

The percent of working-age (22-64 years of age) people on the disability waivers with monthly earnings slightly increased.

To help track progress, counties that are similar in population size are grouped together and called a "cohort." Cohort 1 includes Minnesota's smallest counties and has the highest percent of people with monthly earnings.

Why this measure is important?

Working and earnings are important to people with disabilities as they become more independent. Studies have shown that outcomes like choice and self-esteem improve once a person with a disability is working and earning money. Work provides opportunities for a person to contribute to their community and beyond.

What is included in the measure?

The number of working age people on Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals (CADI) and Brain Injury (BI) waivers who have monthly earnings.

What does it mean?

A higher percent means there are more working age people on the disability waivers employed and earning income. When the percent is low, fewer people have a chance to work. A higher percent means more people with disabilities have employment.

How is it calculated?

The number of working age people served on the disability waivers that have monthly earnings divided by the total number of working age people served in disability waivers.
