Equal Opportunities for Women with Disabilities in Vienna


Within this research project a detailed analysis of existing (micro-) data such as employment statistics, data on beneficiaries with disabilities as well as data on passive and active labor market policies was carried out in order to obtain a more accurate picture of the labor market situation of women. On the other hand, the experiences of women with disabilities in different life and labor market situations, with different types of disabilities and educational qualifications were documented by means of in-depth qualitative interviews.

The aim of the study commissioned by the Public Employment Service Austria (AMS) is to analyse the employment situation of women with disabilities in Austria on a quantitative as well as qualitative level in order to develop solutions for a better integration of women with disabilities in the labour market.
