October 9, 2007

Only 38% of people with disabilities are employed in America and two-thirds of those unemployed say they prefer to be working. A new report from the National Council on Disability (NCD) summarizes current knowledge on the employment of people with disabilities in a series of 12 issue briefs based on feedback from employers, people with disabilities, and disability specialists. The report also includes findings from two focus groups and public forums.
