Pay gaps explained

Disability pay gap explained

About the data:

  • The disability pay gap figures are based on a statistical predictive model which uses Labour Force Survey data from the period 1997 to 2014.
  •  Because of the way the disability figures were calculated, it is only possible to provide a percentage gap and not the difference in terms of pounds and pence.
  • The figures in the disability pay gap infographics are not directly comparable to the gender pay gap infographic or the ethnicity pay gap infographic as different sources are used.
  • The terminology used here to describe disability is taken directly from the Labour Force Survey.
