Research Brief: The Role of Tasks and Skills in Explaining the Disability Pay Gap

Other Titles
Abstract
A disparity in pay exists between workers with and without disabilities. This gap persists even in analyses that control for a variety of factors and incorporate compensation benefits other than wages and salaries. To better understand the underlying sources of these differences, occupation-level data on employee skill and task requirements are considered. Evaluating the earnings gap with this additional information provides insights regarding the economic returns to certain workplace tasks and skills that may contribute to the earnings gap that we observe for people with disabilities.
