Lifecycle Events and Their Consequences

This chapter provides an overview of the section of the book that discusses health shocks. A main theme of the discussion is the need for disability researchers to distinguish short-run from long-run consequences and to compare the impacts across a broad range of disability measures. The chapter concludes by noting that developing consistent definitions and measurement strategies for disability should be a high-priority objective.
