Section 5: Work and Disabilities

5.3. How many work disabled persons are working full-time?

Another way to look at employment of people with a work disability is through full-time employment rates. Only 18.4% of the 16.9 million people with a work disability are employed full time. In comparison, 62.0% of the 150 million nonwork disabled people are employed full-time. The difference is true regardless of sex, race, or ethnicity.

People with a work disability are far less likely to work full time, year round than those with no work disability.
