The aim of this publication is to analyse the health experiences of those in our population with a profound or severe disability in comparison to those with no reported disability. The analysis aims to inform discussion and debate around health policies which impact on people with Profound/severe core activity limitation.

The data is drawn from the 2007-08 National Health Survey, conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) from August 2007 to June 2008. Around 20,800 people from all States and Territories and across all age groups were included. As the NHS is a household survey, residents of hospitals, nursing or convalescent homes or similar accommodation were outside the scope of the survey, therefore prevalence data for some conditions are likely to be affected. The survey did not go to very remote areas.
