Benchmarks - disability & accessibility

Australian population 

The Australian Bureau of Statistics Disability and Labour Force Participation publication released in 2019, shows that in 2018, there were 2.1 million Australians aged 15-64 years (of 'prime working age') with disability. Of these over half (53.4%) or 1.1 million were in the labour force, compared with 84.1% of those without disability, and almost half (47.8%) were employed, compared with 80.3% of people without disability.
