The definition of disability used is consistent with the core definition of disability under the Equality Act 2010. A person is considered to have a disability if they have a long-standing illness, disability or impairment which causes difficulty with day-to-day activities.
Data by disability status are available from 2006/07, however this is based on detailed breakdowns and does not align to the core definition under the 2010 Equality Act. This data are available in the 2017/18 dataset and 2006/07 to 2016/17 dataset.
This indicator is being used as an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. Where possible, we will work to identify or develop UK data to meet the global indicator specification. This indicator has been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
