ABSTRACT

This study examined whether subjective quality of life of people with disabilities affects employment, and whether employment affects the quality of life using longitudinal data from Panel Survey of Employment for the Disabled(PSED). for the study, groups with disabilities who were unemployed at the same time were divided according to whether they were employed one year later. As a result, under the same unemployment situation, most of the variables of subjective quality of life between the two groups were different, and the change according to employment status showed family's employment support, self-efficacy, self-esteem, happiness, and satisfaction with daily life. These results indicate the need for a variety of policies that could bring people with disabilities out to job site, while building up polices to increase subjective quality of life for hiring people with disabilities.
