One in five Australians have a disability

Andrew Arch (NILS) just let me know about an interesting statistic. The Australian Bureau of Statistics states:

“The 2003 SDAC (Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers) estimates that one in five Australians (3,951,000 or 20%) had a disability. This rate was the same for males and females. The rate increased with age, reaching 81% for those aged 85 years and over.”
