The Impact of the Great Recession on Workers with Disabilities – October 2010

Categories: Employment

This report in the Monthly Labor Review Online describes how people with disabilities fared worse in the Great Recession than the general population. Data from the Current Population Survey (CPS) indicate that between October 2008 and June 2010, job losses among workers with disabilities far exceeded those of workers without disabilities.  This resulted in the proportion of employed U.S. workers identified as having disabilities declining by 9 percent.  You can download the complete report (12 pages) in PDF format.
