Disability, Ageing and Carers Survey
In relation to transport, data are available on ability to use public transport, private transport assistance, carers' involvement in providing assistance, possession of driver's licence and frequency of driving. A further module asks about travel for a range of common purposes (work, school, doctors, shopping, social and leisure) in the previous fortnight, and the main mode of travel on the most recent trip.
Frequency of Data Availability
The survey is conducted every five years. The most recent was conducted from March to May 1998. Results will be available in February 1999.
Three previous surveys have been conducted, in 1981 (Survey of Handicapped Persons), 1988 (Survey of Disabled and Aged Persons) and 1993 (Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers). These surveys collected similar but not strictly comparable information.
