Abstract

Supporting disabled people: 2013 presents findings on support received by disabled people in some aspects of their personal lives, and is based on data from the 2013 Household Disability Survey (2013 HDS).

This article examines the types of support that disabled people received and who provided that support. The 2013 HDS included questions about a range of personal and domestic tasks for which disabled people might receive help. This article also explores unmet need for help with these tasks, along with differences by age, sex, and impairment type where possible.

Please note this article excludes the findings from the Disability Survey of Residential Facilities (DSRF).
