People with disabilities in the labour market – 2011

People with disabilities in the labour market – 2011

In 2011, 45.6 per cent of people aged 16 to 64 with a disability that limits their daily activities, known as DDA disabled, were in work, accounting for around 3.2 million people across the UK. For those without a disability around 76.2 per cent were in work.

For those DDA disabled, around a third had a part-time job (33.8 per cent), compared to only a quarter of working people without a disability (24.6 per cent) so as well as a lower percentage in work, those working tend to work fewer hours.
