Disability prevalence refers to the proportion of a population with disability at a specific point in time. If the content and administration of surveys are uniform over time, then trends in disability prevalence can be assessed by comparing proportions of disabled persons across years and calculating changes in either absolute or relative by: 2.

The most common functional disability type was mobility disability, reported by about 1 in 8 adults. Over a third of adults 65 years or older reported any disability.

Adults years of age were more likely than other age group adults to report a cognitive disability. A comparison of the United States and Australia Since a number of recent studies on trends in disability are concentrated on older Americans we may take the US as an example of a reported decline in disability with an increase in the reported prevalence of chronic conditions.

In particular, we examine associations between chronic disability rates and trends in age distribution, race and ethnicity, and weight (body mass index or BMI). In addition, we examine associations of other sociodemographic factors that might affect general health – education, employment, and poverty – to chronic disability prevalence over by: DISABILITY SERIES Disability prevalence and trends December Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Canberra AIHW cat.
