To characterize financial and vocational outcomes among persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in terms of employment status, earned and private income, and public assistance received at the time of injury and at 1 year after injury.
Nonexperimental, longitudinal study.
Inpatient TBI rehabilitation unit and participants' community of residence.
Thirty-five persons with new TBI from 1 national Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems center.
Employment status, earned and private monthly income, and public assistance received monthly at the time of injury and at 1-year follow-up.
From the time of injury until 1-year follow-up, the percentage of persons employed decreased from 69 percent to 31 percent; the percentage unemployed increased from 11 percent to 49 percent; the average earned monthly income declined 51 percent (from US dollars 1,491 to US dollars 726); and the mean total public assistance received per month increased 275 percent (from US dollars 153 to US dollars 421).
Assuming that this study sample is representative of national statistics for TBI, during the first year after injury, TBI is associated with an estimated
642 million in lost wages, US dollars 96 million in lost income taxes, and US dollars 353 million in increased public assistance.
