Disability and the Labour Market in New Zealand in 2006

Disability and the Labour Market in New Zealand in 2006 is one of several reports that present information on the lives of people with disabilities in New Zealand, drawing on data from the 2006 Disability Survey. The focus of the report is the experience of disabled people in the labour force. It looks at their labour force participation, and describes how it varies by factors such as educational qualification and type of disability. It describes the types of industries and occupations that disabled people are employed in and compares them with those of non-disabled people. The report also examines the need for workplace modifications and support, and the extent to which these needs are currently met among employed disabled people.

Disability and the Labour Market in New Zealand in 2006 provides useful and relevant information for policy makers, practitioners and others with an interest in the labour market experiences and outcomes of people with disabilities. The report illustrates the type of labour force information that is available on people with disabilities from the 2006 Disability Survey. Tables are appended to the report for people wishing to undertake their own analyses. Further information can be obtained by contacting Statistics New Zealand.
