Ireland's low disability limits

Ireland has one of the lowest levels of workers limited in what they can do because of a disability, European data suggests.

In 2011, about 19pc of all 15 to 64-year-olds in the 28 EU member states had some medical or environmental limitation at work, ranging from 10pc in Ireland and 11pc in Spain and the Czech Republic. This rises to 50pc in Cyprus and Hungary, according to data compiled by Europe's statistical agency, Eurostat.
