2016 Annual Disability Statistics Compendium

Employment

Section 2: Employment

This section presents statistics on monthly and annual employment participation and full-time, year-round (FTYR) employment in the United States. For both categories of employment, data are presented for people with disabilities, people without disabilities, and the difference in percentage employed (employment gap) between these two populations. There are three sources of data used in this section.

The first source of these data is the American Community Survey (U.S. Census Bureau). For these tables, statistics for people with disabilities (disability status or disability type) are based on having responded ‘yes’ to a series of questions within the American Community Survey. The definition for employment status in the American Community Survey can be found in the glossary.

Monthly time trends are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Data Retrieval System and are based on data from the Current Population Survey-Basic Monthly Survey. Annual time trends were produced by the authors using data from the Current Population Survey-Annual Social and Economic Supplement, which is fielded annually in March. For these tables, similar to the American Community Survey, statistics for people with disabilities (disability status) are based on having responded ‘yes’ to a series of questions within the Current Population Survey. In addition, the definition for employment status in both Current Population Surveys can be found in the glossary.
