Percentage of People with and without Disabilities Who Work Part-Time, Age 16 to 64, 2016

Among people who are employed, there are sometimes important differences in the number of hours worked. The number of hours worked can lead to different levels of income and access to employer benefits such as health insurance. We identified and compared the percentage of people age 16-64 with and without disabilities living in the community who are employed part-time (34 hours or less per week). This measure allows us to see that the percentage of people with disabilities who are employed part-time (US Average is 20.6% with a range of 15.3% in West Virginia to 29.6% in South Dakota) is only slightly higher than the percentage of people without disabilities are employed part-time (US Average is 27.8% with a range of 24.6% in Mississippi to 35.0% in Alaska).
