Further Details
Abstract Disability status is often transitory or a matter of insidious change. A person's ability to function properly depends to a considerable extent on her/ his social and physical environment. One area that slips through the large-scale studies like the census and National Sample Survey is the impact of the state and the market on the lives of people with disabilities. There is a case for a more fundamental re-envisioning of the nature of the disability estimates.
