Background information
Around 44 million people aged 15 to 64 in the European Union (EU28) have reported a disability1, often preventing them from taking part fully in society and the economy. Whether in the labour market, in the education system or for social inclusion indicators, the situation of disabled persons in the EU28 is less favourable than that of non-disabled people.
