This report presents social and economic data by sex for persons with a work disability. Tables feature persons—generally civilians—aged 16 to 64 and show disability status by family income and earnings, as well as labor force, employment, unemployment, occupation, and work experience. The report also cross-classifies disability status by metropolitan and central city residence, educational attainment, family relationship, marital status, and veteran status, along with some economic data. The economic data cover personal income, poverty status, and benefit recipiency. The report repeats many of these data for persons classified by sex, race, and Spanish origin. In addition, the publication provides some data on the work disability status of persons 65 to 74.
Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
