The first pilot test has been conducted for a possible disability topic on the Monthly Population Survey in June 2001. The aim is to identify populations with levels of severity of disability so that the effect of disability on labour force participation can be understood. Another disability project underway is an analysis of trends in disability, to be circulated as a working paper towards the end of the year.
