Jan. 26, 2007 -- Service-disabled veterans are up to 50 percent less likely to be self-employed than other veterans, according to a study released Friday by the Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy.

The study examined data on all service veterans from 1985 to 2005 and attributes the lower self-employment rate of service-disabled veterans to disabilities that hinder their ability to work for themselves or launch a business startup.
