How Many Earned Wages

What this page shows us: This page shows how many working age regional center clients have earned money in each of the last eight years. The number of people making money has gone up slightly over time, interrupted by the great recession in 2009 and 2010. However, in 2012 the number of people making money was back down to the level of the recession.  Also, the percentage of working age regional center clients who do make money is still very small, only 12.4% in 2012. Even though the number of people with earnings is increasing slowly, the number of working age regional center clients has also been increasing.
