Resilience in Adults with Physical Disabilities Who Are Living in Rural Communities

Resilience in Adults with Physical Disabilities Who Are Living in Rural Communities on the Ecology of Rural Disability

This study examines four-year outcomes of rural people with disabilities based on characteristics they disclose using a paper and pencil survey. The survey will measure important characteristics like secondary conditions (e.g., pain and fatigue), psychological states (e.g., depression and hope), social circumstances (social activities and perceived social support) and environmental barriers (e.g., accessibility, climate, etc.). The project will use scores for each characteristic to predict how much people participate in community and how that participation changes over time.
