Study on factors which affect employment rate of persons with disabilities
focus on analysis by disability type and support employer systems
The purpose of this paper is to compare different factors that affect the employment rate for people with various types of disabilities. In particular, I focus on support programs for employers hiring disabled workers in Korea. There are 15 types of disabilities in Korea.
To compare the types of disability, I divide them into four subcategories: External physical disability, Sensory impairment, Psychological disability and Internal physical disability. For the data analysis, the ‘2014 Survey on the Employment Conditions of the Disabled in the Business Sector’ was used. To distinguish between characteristics of employment and unemployment of disabled workers, 4,975 enterprises that employ disabled workers were chosen for the sample, and there were 2,910, 316, 68, and 47 cases of each disability type, respectively. In this study, the employment rate of persons with disabilities has been transformed to logarithm employment rate.
