  1. 2008 SURVEY FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH DISABILITIES Office of Social Service Research & Development Louisiana State University

  2. SURVEY FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH DISABILITIES • Effort to better comprehend the needs of people living with disabilities in Louisiana • Joint effort by the Department of Health and Hospitals, Office of Citizens with Developmental Disabilities, Office of Mental Health • Research conducted by Dr. Cecile Guin, Laura Meiki & Meredith Anderson from the Office of Social Service Research & Development at LSU • Second wave of data collection in a larger research effort that began in 2004

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF 2008 SURVEY • Used 2004 survey and a preliminary draft composed by Elaine Richard and the MIG advisory council as a starting point • Revised by OSSRD research staff • Conducted 3 focus groups to receive additional feedback • Corresponded with focus group members over email about subsequent revisions and drafts • Finalized survey instrument in December 2007

  4. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN 2004 & 2008 • Changes to survey structure • Length (2x as long) • New sections (emergency preparedness, independent living, employment, personal finances) • Use of shaded, indented boxes to indicate skip patterns • Changes to survey content • General changes • No satisfaction questions • Focus on supports used, supports needed, why needed supports not received • Specific changes • More response categories added, new sections, check all that apply • “Who is answering this survey?” and “Why is someone helping you?”

  5. SAMPLES & RESPONSE RATES • 2004: 8000 surveys mailed, 1099 usable responses collected • 2008: 9970 surveys mailed. 921 usable responses collected • Samples drawn from different lists • Longer surveys deter respondents • Requested detailed financial information • Differences in surveys available online • Demographic changes since hurricanes

  6. SAMPLES & RESPONSE RATE • It is likely that the 2 surveys sampled very different populations • DHH Region: percentage of respondents from Region 1 (Orleans, St. Bernard. Jefferson) and Region 5 (Cameron Parish) decreased by 5% each • Racial-Ethnic Composition: 2004 had 66% Caucasian and 29% African American respondents, while 2008 had 51% African American and 46% Caucasian • Socioeconomic status: 2004 respondents reported paying much more for housing • Health Insurance: 55% of 2004 respondents and 72% of 2008 respondents report Medicaid coverage • It is also important to note that neither survey attempted to draw a random, representative sample

  7. USES AND LIMITATIONS OF DATA • Most questions are multiple response items – “check all that apply” – so results will add up to more than 100% • Population varies by question • These data should not be interpreted as: • Statistically significant • Proof of causal relationships • These data can: • Evidence areas in which further research is needed • Call attention to well pronounced trends • Inform future policy discussions

  8. METHODOLOGY • January 2008: survey packets mailed to 9970 individuals randomly selected from the following lists: • 140 from OCDD • 1162 from OMH • 7829 from Medicaid eligible list • 839 from Medicaid rejected list • Surveys mailed in English, but alternate formats available in Spanish, Vietnamese, Braille, large print, and over video relay • Respondents could either mail survey, take it online, or take it over the phone

  9. METHODOLOGY • The standard format contained 61 questions (54 multiple choice) • 13 sections: General Information, Health Care, Independent Living, Assistive Technology, Transportation, Housing, Education, Employment, Finances, Civic Involvement, Emergency Preparedness, General Comments • Data analyzed by OSSRD staff using distribution analysis
