4.3. Where in the labor market does the Vocational Rehabilitation system place successful clients?

The vast majority of clients who are rehabilitated successfully through the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) system are placed in competitive employment. In 1995, 178,927 or 85.4% were placed in competitive work. The remainder were placed as homemakers (7.6%), in sheltered workshops (4.0%), self-employed (2.7%) and unpaid family workers (0.3%).

More than 3 out of every 4 successful Vocational Rehabilitation clients find a job in the competitive labor market.
