Very generally, the Zero Project Social Indicators show, that the availability of data worldwide is quite poor. This indicator is no exception, with the indicators being 2.0 or below in all of the world’s regions.
All indicators (again, with the possible exception of North America) are far below 2.0, showing that employment percentages are deteriorating worldwide. The situation seems to be extremely bad in northern Africa, but also in Europe, with a Social Indicator of 2.5.
Both Latin America and Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, and smaller islands in the Pacific) show very low Social Indicators of 2.8, followed closely by most of the other world regions. In Europe, a Social Indicator of 2.0 points to a mixed set of existing publishing policies.
In Europe, a Social Indicator of 1.5 shows that in most European countries some policies are in place. On the other hand, compared with the results of Question 2, which clearly indicate that employment figures are going down, this would lead to the conclusion that many policies are not effective.
Social Indicators between 2.0 and 2.9 show that a minimum employment quota for the public sector does not lead to sufficient employment rates of persons with disabilities, as perceived by the questionnaire respondents. Oceania is the laggard with a uniquely low Social Indicator of 2.9.
