Unemployment of Floridians with Disabilities Report

Publication date: 
01/2016

The report shows an employment rate of only 30% for people with disabilities (PWD), ages 16 – 65. Importantly, the research revealed a wide variation of the employment rate from county to county for people with disabilities. This was not true for workers without disabilities. The research was funded by a grant from The Able Trust, to obtain a benchmark employment rate for those they serve, as a primary gauge of the success of programs that The Able Trust funds, and as a measure of the outcomes of the combination of services offered through private and public organizations in the state to increase employment opportunities and actual employment for Floridians with disabilities.
