Aftermath: To what degree is field office performance stable after the 2000 decline?

This report follows up on a previous study, “Examining Washington State’s Vocational Rehabilitation Rates: Why the Decline? A Study of Two Cohorts,” to test the stability of office performance since changes in the year 2000. Rehabilitation rates for clients beginning to receive DVR services in fiscal year 2004 are compared with those in 2002-03. This analysis was made possible in early 2007 since data was available to follow-up more resent clients for two and a half years, till December 2006. The consistent better-than-expected performance among nine offices suggests that there may be some systematic practices that generated these outcomes.
