Adults with a Disability and Sport. National Survey 2000/2001

E-mail Print

The main aim of the survey was to identify current levels of sports participation among adults (16 - 59 years) with a disability and their views on the barriers and constraints that may prevent them from taking part in sport.

The survey sample was a sub-sample identified from the 2000-2001 Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the General Household Survey (GHS) during the same year. The sub-sample consisted of adults aged 16-59 years living in private households in England who reported having a Limiting Long-Standing Illness (LLSI).

The survey, introduced to respondents as the Survey of Leisure, Sport and Health, was carried out by Social Survey Division of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on behalf of Sport England.
