Abstract

To compare demographics, material hardship, and public benefit program participation among parents with and without disabilities, we analyzed data from the 2008 Survey of Income and Program Participation. Households led by parents with disabilities were significantly more likely to experience hardships despite also being more likely to receive public benefits.
