DISABILITY


Topics in this section will focus mainly on the prevalence of disability and how this has changed over time.

The Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) defines disability, not by the conditions that a person may have, but by the disruption these conditions cause to their daily living. The survey definition states that:

‘a person has a disability if they report they have a limitation, restriction or impairment, which has lasted, or is likely to last, for at least six months and restricts everyday activities’ (Disability, Ageing and Carers, Australia: Summary of Findings, 2009).
