    ABS: Disability, Ageing and Carers, Australia: Summary of Findings, 2018

    This publication presents results from the 2018 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC), conducted throughout Australia by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). 

    In the 2018 survey, it is shown that there have been improvements in some education outcomes for people living with disability. There was an increase in the proportion of people with disability aged 15 years and over with a higher education qualification. The survey showed that 16.1% of people with disability over the age of 15 had a bachelor degree or above in 2018, up from 14.9% in 2015.  More people with disability completed year 12 in 2018 (33.4%) compared to 2015 (31.4%).

    The overall rate of disability in Australia decreased in 2018 with 17.7% of the population (4.4 million people) reporting living with disability, down from 18.3% in 2015 and 18.5% in 2012. This was driven predominantly by a decrease in females with disability and a decrease among people with disability aged 25 to 44 and 60 to 64 years.
