About State Data, a project of ThinkWork promotes Employment First and systems change efforts nationwide by supporting outcome-based management and planning. Since the mid-1980s, the Institute for Community Inclusion has collected data from state intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) agencies, the vocational rehabilitation (VR) system, and other agencies such as the Social Security Administration, the U.S. Census, and the U.S. Department of Labor, to describe trends in day and employment services for individuals with developmental disabilities.
