Note: "Combined" Vocational Rehabilitation agencies refer to agencies serving individuals with all types of disabilities in the state, including those with visual impairments. "General" Vocational Rehabilitation agencies refer to agencies serving all individuals with disabilities except those who are blind or visually impaired.

To calculate the percent of people by state who achieved a competitive employment outcome whose own income was their primary source of support at VR closure, divide the number of people in a particular state whose own income was their primary source of support at VR closure by the total competitive employment outcomes in the state and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of people in Vermont whose own income was their primary source of support at VR closure. This calculation would be: 698/1,043=.6692 and .6692x100=66.92%
