As well as the Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (1998, 2003) providing detailed information about people with a disability, a standard short disability module has been included in many social surveys since 2002. The 2006 Census of Population and Housing also included some questions on need for assistance. This information paper examines the different ABS sources of disability data and indicates what information about people with a disability can be obtained from each source. The paper will present some basic analyses of the differences between the disability populations identified by the different question sets and give some advice on the best use of each source of disability data.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
