The U.S. Department of Labor has released the Economic Picture of the Disability Community Project, a joint initiative between DOL’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, Employment and Training Administration, Chief Economist, Office of the Secretary, and the White House Council of Economic Advisors (CEA). The data produced are based on an analysis of the Census Bureau’s 2010-2012 American Community Survey, matched to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2012-2022 occupational projections. The report contains both the familiar news that employment levels for people with disabilities are low, adding that they tend to concentrate in low-paying, slower-growing occupations, and the good news that job growth for people with disabilities in well-paying occupations has substantial potential.
For more detailed information on the potential for job growth among people with disabilities in well-paying occupations over the coming decade, click here.
