Description of Factors that Affect the Employment Status of Working-Age Adults with Visual Impairments in New Zealand

Of the 150 working-age visually impaired adults in this study, 59 were in paid employment, 36 were either actively seeking employment or interested but not actively seeking it, and 55 were not interested in employment. Of the 59 who were employed, 22 were considered to be underemployed. The amount of usable vision, gender, and the presence of other disabling conditions were found to have significant affects on the rates of employment, unemployment, and labor force participation and some apparent affects on underemployment.
