The role of economic analysis in supporting disability policy
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

A broad measure of consensus has emerged in Ireland and internationally on the nature of disability and the principles that should guide disability policy. Disability is seen as a socioeconomic phenomenon, whereby disabled people are prevented from participating fully in social and economic activities due to the presence of various barriers. This chapter presents some key concepts discussed in this book. The book explores a range of issues and debates of relevance to the economics of disability. It examines the associations between disability and a variety of measures of social inclusion. The book examines the association between the childhood disability status of households and a range of socioeconomic outcome measures, including parental labour market outcomes, levels of parental education, social class and economic hardship. It also examines the economics of mental health services and presents a broad overview of key economic issues facing the provision of such services in Ireland.
