Topics included in the 2013 Disability Survey

The Disability Survey begins with a series of questions that ask whether you have difficulty doing certain activities, and if the difficulty is long term (lasting six months or more). For example, you are asked if you have difficulty hearing, seeing, or walking, and to what degree. There are questions about what caused these difficulties. These questions allow us to correctly identify who is disabled, according to the definition used by the survey. All respondents will answer these questions.

The survey also asks questions on a wide range of topics. Not all respondents are asked questions in every topic. Some questions are answered by both disabled and non-disabled people, and others by disabled people only, or by people with certain types of impairment.

Below is a summary of the topics included in the two components of the 2013 Disability Survey.
