This paper discusses possible methodological approaches for an empirical study on modelling small area estimates (SAE's) of disability using the ABS Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC), together with other external administrative data sources as auxiliary variables. External users are interested in small area estimates for five categories of disability (sensory, intellectual, physical, psychological and other) at the Statistical Local Area (SLA) level, which are mainly either Local Government Areas (LGA's) or parts thereof. Of all SLA's across Australia, 62% contain dwellings selected in SDAC.
