Disability and the labour market: Findings from the 2013 Disability Survey uses data from the 2013 New Zealand Disability Survey to examine how disabled people are faring in the labour market. It looks at rates of labour force participation and employment and unemployment among disabled people, the type of jobs they work in, the limitations and difficulties they face in finding employment, and their needs for workplace modifications or special equipment. This report compares the disabled and non-disabled populations where relevant, and also looks at variations within the disabled population in terms of demographic characteristics and types of impairment.
