Section IX. Survey Results

The results of two surveys conducted by external groups are included in this CSNA to further inform the findings and recommendations. One survey was conducted in 2018 by Disability: IN Ohio, formerly known as the Ohio Business Leadership Network, regarding the services most needed by member businesses in relation to staff education and awareness of disability issues, including the retention of employees with disabilities. The second survey, the Survey for Disability and Employment, was conducted in 2014 by Mathematica Policy Research and the Kessler Foundation regarding the barriers and facilitators to employment experienced by applicants to state VR agencies. A follow-up to this survey was conducted in 2017 to link survey data to state earnings data to identify factors correlated with positive employment outcomes. The results of each survey are summarized in the following pages.
