Research

Individuals with disabilities are three times more likely to live in poverty than their nondisabled peers. There is a growing body of research created by NDI and other leading experts that is challenging the impact of current policies, systems, and strategies. To inform future public policy development to advance financial stability and mobility for individuals with disabilities, NDI has authored the following reports and publications:
