Measuring inequality is essential for identifying the barriers faced by people with disability in exercising their human rights. Evidence of disability-related inequalities can inform action to remove barriers and reduce inequalities.
This report presents the first national data using the Disability and Wellbeing Monitoring Framework and Indicators, which was developed by the CRE-DH in consultation with people with disability and disability advocates.
Baseline indicator data are presented for people aged 18 to 64 years with disability in Australia, making comparisons with people without disability where possible. Indicators are reported for 19 domains grouped under three broad headings: Health, Social determinants of health, and Service system.Download report (off-site)
