AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - State agencies have announced a new Web page that provides information on Mainers struggling with disabilities and unemployment.

The Web page on the Center for Workforce Research and Information site displays data such as the age, education, gender and statewide distribution of Mainers with impairments.

Disabilities range from poor vision and hearing to cognitive disorders. The Web page announced Thursday updates information provided in state publications about employment status and services for people with disabilities.

The Maine Department of Labor says it was developed in response to concerns there is not enough state-specific information. Gov. Paul LePage said in a press statement that all Mainers, including those with disabilities, deserve access to employment.
