By contrast, the difference between the percentages that had a high school diploma was small but statistically significant—27% and 24%, and the difference between the percentages that had at least a university certificate, diploma or degree at bachelor’s level was large: 14% of persons with disabilities versus 27% of persons without disabilities.
This report presents a profile of persons with disabilities, based on data from the 2012 Canadian Survey on Disability (CSD).
Among persons with disabilities, 19% had less than a high school diploma, compared with 9% of those without disabilities (Chart 7).
The difference between the percentages of persons with and without disabilities who had postsecondary education below the bachelor’s degree level—41% and 39%, respectively—was not statistically significant.
Differences in the prevalence of disability across the provinces and territories may, in part, reflect varying age compositions.
For example, the populations in Alberta and the three territories are relatively young.
The percentage with a university degree decreased as the severity of the disability increased.
Just under half of 25- to 64-year-olds whose disabilities existed before they completed school reported that the condition influenced their choice of courses and career and 30% indicated that it took them longer to achieve their present level of education.
