Benchmark:Help on this termRelated NDA benchmark - Performance benchmark (a) An increase in the proportion of people with disability in employment.
Other issues caveats:Help on this term

Available disaggregation depends on sampling errors and other caveats.

SDAC does not collect labour force participation information for persons in cared accommodation. Data are available for private dwelling and non-cared accommodation special dwellings only.

2012 report

- 2009 SDAC is the latest available source for data about the labour force participation rate of people with disability.

- 2009 SDAC does not provide this data for the Indigenous population, therefore Indigenous data needs to be taken from a different source (e.g. NATSISS 2008).

- The NATSISS uses an abbreviated form of the Disability Module, which is less detailed than the SDAC.

- 'Not disabled' is a category in the 'Disability status' variable, so data comparable the disabled and non-disabled populations are available in the disaggregation's listed above.
