Abstract

This research examines the effect of disability status on the labour market earnings of males and females in Australia. The results indicate that disabilities have a large impact on labour earnings, however, this impact is not uniform across disabilities or between males and females for the same disability. Disfigurement or deformity disabilities, for example, have a significant impact on female earnings but appear largely insignificant for male earnings. In contrast, blackouts, fits and loss of consciousness have a strong effect on male earnings and a much weaker effect on female earnings. Overall, emotional and nervous conditions appear to have the largest impact on both female and male labour market earnings.
