Full Presentation Title: The Comparison of the Characteristics between the Employed and the Unemployed among the High School Graduates with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in South Korea
The purpose of the present study is to compare the characteristics between the employed and the unemployed among high school leavers with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities using a nationally representative data set. Data for this study were extracted from the 8th Panel Survey of Employment for the Disabled raw data from Korea Employment Agency for the Disabled in 2015. The target sample number for this study was 100. Specifically, there were 76 people with intellectual disabilities and 24 people with developmental disabilities in the data set. This study found that the employed were more likely to be male, had milder disabilities, graduated from colleges, and did not receive social security beneficiaries, had better computer skills and social skills, did not need help for daily activities, and received vocational services and vocational training than the unemployed. Also, this study revealed that the people who were employed were more satisfied about life satisfaction as well as had higher self-esteem than those who were unemployed among high school leavers with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities.
