NOTE: Probabilities calculated using parameter coefficients from Table 2.1.

ADA (see column 2, last row). However, this effect is not significantly different from zero; in a model where all other coefficients are significantly different from zero, this is notable. On the other hand, the labor force participation rate declined significantly, by nearly 4 percentage points more for the disabled than for the nondisabled, post-ADA.19
