Megan Henly has over 20 years of experience in survey production and statistical analysis in academia, government, and the non-profit sectors. She holds a Ph.D. in sociology and an M.S. in survey methodology. As a researcher at the Institute on Disability, her work is focused on identifying and utilizing secondary data sources that capture a representative picture of how people with disabilities are doing with respect to employment, health, community participation, and overall well-being. Dr. Henly seeks to identify unique methods of measuring these outcomes in a manner that contributes to existing academic research and that is also practical to policymakers. Her current research includes an examination of the role of homeownership in shaping outcomes for SSI recipients, and an analysis of access to workplace accommodations across categories of race and ethnicity. In addition, she currently serves as a mentor to the IOD’s ARRT postdoctoral researchers.
