Day & Employment Services Outcomes Systems Report
The “Day & Employment Services Outcomes Systems Report (DESOS)” is an annual statistical documentation of the types of work or alternatives to work in which individuals with disabilities are engaged throughout Indiana. The report is compiled by the Center on Community Living and Careers for the Indiana Bureau of Rehabilitation Services, a bureau of the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services and the state's Family and Social Services Administration.
The DESOS report provides information about people with disabilities who are receiving supports from Indiana's adult service providers. Essentially, DESOS gives state administrators, legislators, and providers themselves a data “snapshot,” which can help policy makers answer questions about where thousands of individuals throughout Indiana are spending the majority of their day; what types of work they may be doing; and the outcomes they are achieving related to employment, specifically wages earned and hours worked.
