Enumeration of the 2003 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) (cat. no. 4430.0) is currently underway. This process should be completed in November 2003, with results expected to be released from late May 2004. The survey will cover three main areas: people with a disability (including disability status, main condition, assistance needed/received, use of aids, use of public transport and employment restrictions); older persons (including assistance needed/received, culture leisure participation, disability status and income); and people who provide assistance to others because of their disability (including carer status, relationship to main recipient, time spent caring for main recipient, need for and receipt of respite care, reasons for caring).
