INFLUENCE OF DEMOGRAPHIC FEATURES ON EVALUATION OF THE JOB MARKET BY THE DISABLED LIVING IN RURAL AREAS

The paper has been prepared on the basis of the results of the study conducted as part of the project: “The determinants of economic activity of the disabled living in rural areas” co-ϐinanced by PFRON (State Fund for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled). A group of 5000 disabled people has been surveyed. The purpose of the paper was to inquire about the opinion of the disabled living in rural areas on the subject of their situation on the local job market. In the analysis, demographic features have been take into account (such as sex, age, education), as features differentiating the disabled persons living in rural areas, who in the survey evaluated the local job market. Most of the inquired consider the situation on the local job market to be bad or very bad, with respect to the chances of ϐinding a job, a number of job offers, and their attractiveness. It is necessary to implement measures and programs that would help the disabled ϐind a job, and at the same time, motivate the employers to hire them. The research results show that the steps taken so far are insufficient.
