The Bigger Picture: Understanding disability and care in England’s older population

The Strategic Society Centre, November 2014

This unique research project explores disability and care at a national, regional and local authority level in England.

It brings together data from Census 2011, DWP and HSCIC ‘administrative data’, as well as from Wave 6 of the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, to look at the prevalence of disability, need and care of different types, and to ‘paint a picture’ of the lives of different groups.
