This project will be looking at unemployment after traumatic brain injury. It will focus on people who were working before their injury. First, we will find out the unemployment rate for those people one year after injury. We will compare that rate with the unemployment rate for the general population. We will then look at age, gender, and education, to see if those factors make a difference in who is employed and who is not. We will also look at injury severity and cognitive abilities to see how they affect employment status.
