A follow-up questionnaire containing questions on employment was sent to spinal cord injured veterans who had completed their hospital rehabilitation. Of those who responded approximately one-quarter were currently employed, one-quarter had been employed at one time but were not current, and the remainder never had been employed. Two employment variables were examined in relation to several other variables. These issues were (1) whether the individual had obtained any post-injury employment and (2) whether those individuals having obtained employment were able to sustain their jobs (i.e. were currently employed). © 1978.
