    [Excerpt] Census Bureau data from 2013 show that 12.6 percent of the U.S. population has some form of disability, although estimates of the proportion of the population living with a disability may vary depending on the definition of the term disabled. In 2014, working-age (16-64 years old) women with disabilities made up 1.5 percent of the workforce even though they were nearly 4 percent of the U.S. working age population. These women represent a critical source of untapped labor force talent. In 2014, seven in ten working-age individuals with disabilities were not in the labor force, compared with about two in ten working-age individuals with no disability.
