DISABILITY AND THE 2006 CENSUS
Development of a suitable question on disability for the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. The focus of the question will be on the concept of 'need for assistance'. In preparation for the 2006 Census a Census Advisory Group on Disability (CAGD) was convened, with representatives from a range of areas. A key role of the group is to identify and prioritise the key requirements for disability data for small areas. A series of focus group tests occurred in the first half of 2003, with a large scale test in August 2003, and a further large scale test in 2004.
