For the last 18 years, Megan Henly, Ph.D., has worked in survey production (both small scale and large, nationally-representative data collection efforts) and statistical analysis in academia, federal government, and the non-profit sectors. As an analyst at the Institute on Disability, her work is focused on identifying and utilizing survey data sets that capture a representative picture of how people with disabilities are doing with respect to employment, health, and overall well-being. Dr. Henly seeks to identify unique methods of measuring these outcomes in a manner that contributes to existing academic research and that is also practical to policymakers. In addition, her work with StatsRRTC offers support to those who serve people with disabilities in accessing and interpreting current disability statistics.
