In general, more men than women participate in the labor force, and this is true for people with and without work disabilities. For both men and women, labor force participation is much lower among those with a work disability. In 1998, among working age men (16 to 64 years), only 32.3% of men with a work disability (2.7 million) were in the work force, compared to 89.1% of men with no work disability (68.2 million). Similarly, only 28.5% of women with a work disability (2.5 million) participate in the labor force, compared to 75.8% of women with no work disability (59.7 million).
