The Office for Disability issues and the Department of Works & Pensions produce a document that brings together all the stats to do with disability and disabled people. The summary document was published in January this year,
The stats come from a variety of sources and cover the following categories:
- general demographics
- living standards
- post-19 education
- independent living
- leisure, social and cultural activities
- civic involvement and volunteering
- justice system
- disability equality indicators
Did you know, for example, that 19% of individuals in families with at least one disabled member live in relative income poverty, on a before housing costs basis, compared to 15% of individuals in families with no disabled member.
Or that 1 in 3 households with a disabled person still live in non-decent accommodation, according th the English house Condition Survey.
The document is updated as new disability-related surveys are published.
