People with disability in Australia brings together information from a range of national data sources to contribute to a greater understanding of disability in Australia. Some people with disability face challenges routinely and actively participating in everyday life areas (such as employment) and are more likely to experience poor health, discrimination and violence than those without disability.
Highlights from this report are presented in People with disability in Australia 2022: in brief.
