This study uses a 50% random sample of administrative records for recipients of the Disability Support Pension (DSP) over the period 1995 to 2002 to investigate the extent and nature of exits from DSP and the factors associated with exits that represent a move towards reduced reliance on income support. The study comprises both descriptive and econometric model estimation components.
