This publication reports findings from the 1981 and 1982 Current Population Survey studies conducted by the United States Bureau of the Census regarding characteristics of the 6,319,000 noninstitutionalized handicapped women in America between 16 and 64 years of age. Tables, figures, and text provide information on age distribution, educational attainment, residential patterns, marital status, labor force participation, income and economic status, and occupational categories of this population. The "typical" working-age disabled woman is described as: 51 years old; a high school graduate; married; not in the labor force; having under $3,500 in income from all sources; and earning $10,569 if employed full time in 1980.
