3 DISABILITY DATA REPORTS [2 December 2014]

 

(1) DISABILITY STATISTICS--LABOUR MARKET ACCESS

http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Disability_statistics_-_labour_market_access

Data from July 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.

This article is part of a set of articles on disability and provides information on people with basic activity difficulties and/or a longstanding health problem causing work limitations. The information is based on the data of the 2011 ad-hoc module of the EU Labour force survey (LFS-AHM). It offers an overview of access to the labour market for the working age population, i.e. people aged between 15 and 64. Apart from information on the European Union (EU) and its individual Member States, data for Iceland, Switzerland and Turkey is also available.

Different aspects of access to the labour market are covered in this article, such as employment and unemployment rates, inactive persons, temporary work, reasons for not seeking employment and reasons for leaving the last job. Results presented have been compiled according to two definitions of disability:

§  Definition 1: People having a basic activity difficulty (such as sight, hearing, walking, communicating);

§  Definition 2: People limited in work because of a longstanding health problem and/or a basic activity difficulty (LHPAD).

 

(2) DISABILITY STATISTICS--ACCESS TO EDUCATION AND TRAINING

http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Disability_statistics_-_access_to_education_and_training

 

Data from July 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.

This article is part of a set of articles on disability which provide information on persons with disabilities. It is based on the data of the 2011 ad-hoc module of the EU Labour force survey (LFS-AHM) and relates to the access to education and training of the population with disabilities aged 15-64 in 31 countries (European Union (EU), Turkey, Iceland and Switzerland).

The data presented refer to the Europe 2020 indicators on education: early leavers from education and training, and tertiary educational attainment. The proportion ofyoung people not in employment and not in any education (NEET), the highest level of education attained and participation in lifelong learning are also covered.

The design of the 2011 ad-hoc module makes possible to compute indicators according to two "main" definitions of disability:

§  Definition 1: People having a basic activity difficulty (such as sight, hearing, walking, communicating);

§  Definition 2: People limited in work activity because of a longstanding health problem and/or a basic activity difficulty (LHPAD).

(3) DISABILITY STATISTICS--POVERTY AND INCOME INEQUALITIES
http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Disability_statistics_-_poverty_and_income_inequalities

Data from July 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.

This article is part of a set of articles on disability and sheds light on the income situation of people with disabilities based on their own reporting of an activity limitation. Income is a key measure of the economic well-being of individuals. Calculations are based on the European statistics on income and living conditions (EU-SILC), which is the reference source for statistics on income, poverty and living conditions in the European Union (EU).

In EU-SILC, disability is approximated according to the concept of global activity limitation, which is defined as a “limitation in activities people usually do for at least the past six months because of health problems”. This is considered to be an adequate proxy for disability, both by the scientific community and disabled persons' organisations.
