Employment of Persons with Disabilities

This paper reports on the employment of persons with disabilities in India based on recent data from the National Sample Survey. The study shows that the employment rate of persons with disabilities is relatively low compared to that of the all-India working age population, with great variations across gender, the urban/rural sectors and states. A multivariate analysis suggests that employment among persons with disabilities is influenced more by individual and household characteristics than human capital.
