Myth busting and number crunching: the disability pay gap

Chief Investigator: Dr George Disney

People with disabilities often experience poor employment outcomes. However, the size and nature of employment disadvantage faced by people with disabilities is not understood and remains unaddressed. This project will conduct an in-depth analysis of the “disability pay gap” – that will feed into an online interactive tool, which aims to bridge the gap between evidence and understanding. The tool will provide a platform for people - ranging from the general public to policy makers - to learn about the employment disparities people with disabilities experience.
