Unemployment for Americans with disabilities showed improvement.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the unemployment for Americans with disabilities showed improvement in the last 3 months.

 For those with disabilities, the jobless rate fell from 12.9 percent to 12.7 percent last month.  However, due to the rate changes, fewer people with disabilities were looking for work.

 Although the economy as a whole added 146,000 jobs in November, those with disabilities continue to struggle to a greater degree than those of the rest of the population.

 In October 2008, The Labor Department began tracking employment among people with disabilities but due to not enough data compiled they are not able to establish seasonal trends among this population therefore the statistics are not seasonally adjusted.

 People who are over the age of 16 who do not live in institutions are reported on this data.

Since February 2009, the reports are now released monthly.
