illustrations show the averages across all 10 states, event-study style, with t = 0 corresponding to the year disability legislation was in place in the state; t < 0 corresponds to the pre-legislation period and t > 0 corresponds to the post-legislation period. There is no obvious change in either the labor force participation rate or conditional employment rate for either the disabled or nondisabled, except for perhaps a higher employment rate for both groups, in the post-legislation period.
