Hi all.  This week my 680 seminar in rehabilitation class is having a
discussion on mental impairment.
During this discussion the statistics cited suggest the unemployment rate
for people with a mental impairment is about 90 per cent.
We on a regular basis say that the blind are the highest unemployed
disability group with about 76 to 80 per cent unemployment.
Which is correct and how can I verify the figures are misused if the
mentally impaired aren't the highest unemployed population?
