The present study sought to identify the factors as well as what would predict discharge of persons with brain injury. Demographics (age, pre-injury educational level, pre-injury occupational status) and Disability Rating Scale (DRS) scores during admission and upon discharge were used for discharge status prediction. A multiple discriminant analysis (MDA) revealed that the DRS scores at admission and upon discharge were significant predictors that correctly classified 72% of grouped cases.
