Resilience does not come from some rare or special qualities but from the everyday magic of ordinary processes that occur in families and communities.

Large quantities of survey and administrative data related to people with disabilities are collected each year. These data often lack clarity and continuity and are therefore underutilized, leading to missed opportunities to improve the programs and policies that advance the lives of people with disabilities.

Disability Statistics and Demographics Rehabilitation Research and Training Center

The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics (StatsRRTC) aims to improve knowledge about and access to existing data, and generate the knowledge needed to improve future disability data collection and dissemination. It is our goal to foster evidence-based decision making by people with disabilities and their families, advocates, policymakers, program administrators, service providers, and researchers by making data widely available and accessible.
