Coverage: The employment statistics of severely disabled persons is based on the data collected by
the Federal Employment Agency from the notification procedure according to õ 80 paragraph 2 of
Social Law (SGB) IX for calculating the extent of the employment obligation, to monitor their
performance and the calculation of a compensatory levy that may be charged.
The actual quota represents the number of severely disabled persons, persons who are equivalent to
them and other allowable persons in the respective reporting year per employer, as a quota of all
workplaces to be counted.
As severely handicapped persons are regarded, who
a) are not only temporarily physically, mentally or emotionally handicapped with a degree of
disability of at least 50,
b) legally live in the Federal Republic of Germany or have their usual residence or workplace as an
employee there and
c) possess a certification (identification card) of disability.
According to õ 71 Abs. 1 SGB IX employers with a yearly average of at least 20 workplaces per month
are committed to fill at least 5 % of these workplaces with severely disabled persons. Until 2000
according to õ 13 Abs. 2 Schwerbehindertengesetz employers with a yearly average of at least 16
workplaces per month were committed to fill at least 6 % of these workplaces with severely disabled
The number of workplaces to be counted arises from the number of workplaces altogether minus the
workplaces for apprentices (õ 74 Abs. 1 SGB IX) and other workplaces (according to õ 73 Abs. 2 and 3
and õ 74 Abs.1 SGB IX).
Break in time series: In 2008 the technical processing procedure for this statistics was adapted to
a modern data warehouse technology. During the adaptation the data has been processed retroactively
for the reporting years starting from 2003. Therefore, the data are only partly comparable with the
previous years. The reported values refer to October of the reporting year until the year 2000.
Starting from 2003 the annual average values are shown.
