To delineate at a population level: activity restrictions, labour market participation, educational attainment, employment restrictions and employment characteristics of persons with psychosis compared with healthy non-disabled persons.
Confidentialized data files were provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The data were collected in a national survey titled 'Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers, Australia 1998'. Multi-stage sampling strategies obtained a probability sample of 42 664 individuals. Trained interviewers using ICD-10 computer-assisted interviews identified household residents with psychosis.
Among householders with psychosis aged 15-64 years, 75.2% were non-participants in the labour market, 21.1% were employed and 3.7% were looking for work. Completing school years 10 and 11, and vocational training, appeared to offer an employment advantage.
Persons with psychotic disorders have low rates of labour force participation and may benefit from greater participation in educational and vocational services. Implications for policy development are discussed.
