Description:
In 2004, the Irish Government decided that the Central Statistics Office (CSO) would conduct a National Disability Survey (NOS) after the 2006 Census of Population. The main purpose of the NOS was to establish the severity and impact of disability. The National Disability Authority (NDA) had commissioned research in 2003 to develop and pilot an appropriate research instrument to establish the prevalence and impact of disability in Ireland. This pilot study fanned the basis for the Government decision for the CSO to conduct a National Disability Survey. Two questions on disability had been included in the Irish Census of Population for the first time in 2002. In 2006 two slightly more detailed questions on disability were included on the Census fonn. The NOS sample was selected based on responses to these questions. The NOS questionnaires were based on the social model of disability which defines disability as the outcome of the interaction between a person with an impainnent and the environmental and attitudinal barriers slhe may face. The questionnaires were broadly divided into two parts. Section 1 of the questionnaire collected a range of data on nine specific disability types including: level of severity, age of onset of disability, aids used or needed to assist with daily life, cause of the disability and in some cases frequency of occurrence. The rest of the questionnaire dealt with topics related to activity and participation such as education, employment, transport and the built environment as well as collecting some basic demographic information.
