The Census is the only data source which can provide an estimate of disability prevalence at a local authority level.
From the 2011 Census we can identify respondents whose day to day activities were either ‘limited a lot' or limited a little' because of a health problem or disability which has lasted, or is expected to last, at least 12 months.
The percentage of working age adults who replied in the Census that their activities are limited either ‘a lot' or ‘a little’ by a health condition or disability is:
|(a) Barnsley Central constituency||18|
|(c) South Yorkshire||15|
Information on the Census can be found on the Office for National Statistics website.
