U.S. men with disabilities were more likely to be in the labor force in April and to have jobs than they were a year earlier.

U.S. women with disabilities were a little less likely to be either employed or actively in the labor force.

Men with disabilities seemed to do better than women with disabilities.

For men with disabilities, the unemployment rate rose to 13.7 percent, from 13.1 percent, but the labor force participation rate climbed to 35 percent, from 33.4 percent and the employment-to-population ratio increased to 30.2 percent, from 29.1 percent.
