Deaf employment in the United States

There are two online sources of deaf employment statistics:

Both sources use data from the  American Community Survey, conducted by the United States Census Bureau.  Please keep in mind:

  • the American Community Survey is a sample

  • terms like “deaf” and “hearing disability” are not clearly defined

  • there is no information about how  “deaf” people with multiple disabilities are identified
