Duration of unemployment

Working-age people with disability are more likely to be unemployed for longer periods than those without disability—30% with disability have been unemployed for at least 1 year, compared with less than 15% without disability (Figure 1).

Unemployed working-age males with disability (39%) are more likely than their female counterparts (20%) to have been unemployed for at least 1 year.
