Providing information on informal carers from the 1998 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers, this publication is valuable for researchers in the fields of caring, disability and related community services. Topics included are need for, receipt and provision of assistance because of disability; characteristics of carers, and in particular primary carers; activities for which care is provided; the effects of caring on labour force experience and other aspects of the lives of principal carers; and the availability and use of support.
