    Abstract

    This paper examines the recorded incidence of disability across European countries and draws attention to the considerable measurement problems involved in the economic analysis of the phenomenon. However, the distinction between work-limited and non-work-limited disability turns out to be particularly helpful in understanding labour market outcomes. Finally, policy alternatives for increasing the degree of social inclusion of the disabled population are evaluated.
