Ariunbileg Sodnomdorj

People with disabilities have always aspired to be active members of society while living and working in different ways. There are currently 107,075 people with disabilities in Mongolia, representing 3.3 percent of the total population as of 2019. The state policy on these citizens has been developed and implemented on a legal basis. Although governmental and non-governmental organizations and researchers have conducted extensive research on the employment of people with disabilities and assessed the results of law enforcement and other activities, there is still a lack of official surveys and statistics to determine the self-employment status of people with disabilities. The purpose of this article is to examine the current state of self-employment of people with disabilities, to determine the level of opportunities for self-employment, and to draw the attention of policymakers, decision-makers, and other influential organizations working in this field.

The survey was based on interview methods, and interviews with speech and hearing-impaired people were conducted with the assistance of a sign language interpreter.
