Profiles of Disability provides an overview of the characteristics and activities of people with disabilities in Australia. It is designed to provide a comprehensive analysis of different aspects of living with disability in Australia that are addressed in the 2009 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) - the main source of data for this publication.

When complete, the publication will examine a variety of areas including:
  • the characteristics of people with disabilities that belong to particular interest groups (e.g. children, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds);
  • the disabling nature of some long-term health conditions (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons disease);
  • the impact particular impairments can have on people's abilities to do everyday tasks (e.g. vision or hearing impairments);
  • how well people with disabilities are able to engage both economically (e.g. employment) and socially and issues relating to accessibility (e.g. transportation use, computer use); and
  • an analysis of the people who need and receive assistance with everyday activities and who provides that assistance.
