Disability prevalence and trends

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare,

Online Resources


This report updates and refines prevalence estimates of five main disability groups in Australia - intellectual, psychiatric, sensory/speech, acquired brain injury and physical/diverse. The groups are defined and explained in terms of Australian and international definitions of disability, and of available Australian statistical data. Recent trends in the reported prevalence of disability are critically reviewed and changes in population patterns of disability prevalence in Australia are examined.
