From the preface: "Although a representative federal workforce is a strategic personnel priority, certain demographic groups have historically been underrepresented, and these groups may continue to face employment barriers. One such group includes persons with targeted disabilities (PWTD), who are the focus of this report. The federal workforce has a 2-percent representation goal for the employment of persons with specific disabilities or health conditions, known as targeted disabilities. Targeted disabilities include developmental disabilities, deafness, blindness, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, intellectual disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, and dwarfism."
