Disability Variables in the American Housing Survey
Frederick J. Eggers (au); Fouad Moumen (au)
The Am. Housing Survey (AHS) added six questions about disability in the 2009 survey. The questions were taken from the Am. Community Survey (ACS) and the same questions have been used in other Federal surveys. This report compares the treatment of disability in the AHS with these and other Federal surveys. It notes that the AHS shows substantially lower incidence of persons and households with disabilities than the ACS. Part of the reason for this may be differences in the way AHS and ACS administer the surveys and the fact that ACS imputes missing values, while AHS does not. There is still an unexplained gap between AHS and ACS so the report recommends further analysis. It notes the relative frequency of different disability measures in the AHS and the patterns of measures that are found together. The report corroborates how disability limits the income earning of any household, especially one-member households who represent one third of all households with disabilities. On the positive side, the report confirms that people with disabilities are more likely to live in assisted housing.Tables. This is a print on demand report.
