Guide for use:Help on this term

Generally this metadata item will be self-enumerated and as such the person or their carer's view should be recorded. The receipt of a disability support pension should not be used as a proxy for identifying people with a disability.

In some cases proof of disability may be required to receive some form of assistance.

Collection methods:Help on this term

This metadata item should be used in conjunction with Household—support services required flag (last month), code N.

Do you have a disability or health condition that limits your participation in activities (such as work, cooking, gardening, self care), or for which you require assistance, which has lasted, or is likely to last for a period of six months or more?


Comments:Help on this termIn some jurisdictions, disability status is only recorded if the disability impacts on the clients housing need.
