The Glossary definition for Primary carer does not include persons aged 60 years and over, who do not have one or more disabilities. This definition is unchanged from the 2003 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers, and should read:
A primary carer is a person who provides the most informal assistance, in terms of help or supervision, to a person with one or more disabilities. The assistance has to be ongoing, or likely to be ongoing, for at least six months and be provided for one or more of the core activities (communication, mobility and self-care). In this survey, primary carers only include persons aged 15 years and over for whom a personal interview was conducted. Persons aged 15 to 17 years were only interviewed personally if parental permission was granted.
