Abstract:
Study examining the influence of demographic factors and injury characteristics on the community reintegration of persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). Data are from 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, and 20 year follow-up of 3,835 persons with SCI. Factors examined included neurological classification, age, years post-injury, sex, ethnicity, and education. These factors were found to explain some but not most of the variance in physical independence, mobility, occupation, social integration, and economic self-sufficiency.
