      This article connects standard research methodology concepts with the complexities of evaluating disability policy using national data sets. The purpose of the article is to help policymakers and others recognize unwarranted cause-and-effect policy conclusions based solely on existing national survey data and demand better data and stronger research designs to complement the potential over-reliance on correlational studies using problematic survey data to estimate policy impacts. To this end, the article concludes with a practical framework for assessing the adequacy of research regarding the employment rate of persons with disabilities.
