Keywords:disability, people with disability, social exclusion, characteristics of social position
AbstractThe article focuses on the inequality based on disabilities. The analysis includes dynamics of social statuses of people with and without disabilities as well as their comparison with reference to current social policies. The research is based on the RLMS-HSE data. The comparative analysis of social positions of people with and without disabilities has allowed identifying the inequalities in many significant areas of life (education, labor activities, etc.). The analysis also shows that there are people with disabilities who do not feel discriminated; they take responsibility for their own lives, and have a positive view of themselves. The author gives an attempt to compare this social group with other social exclusion groups.
