Centres where people younger than 65 live and these reference people


For the survey of persons living in households, EDAD-08 uses the Municipal Register and a stratified two-stage sample type. The first stage units are the census sections.

The first stage units are the Institutions [extracted from a Register of this institutions and in the first step of the survey there was a frame update process]. The second stage units are the people living in the Institution [random sample].

Applicability


Strengths - Research on the number, characteristics and situation of people with disabilities has a clear social consensus because basic information about the situation of people with disabilities is essential for social policy planning and programs aimed at meeting the services needs for the disabled. A new Law on Autonomy and Dependency request a response to a social challenge. - EDAD 2008 started taking advantage from the previous experience of the Survey on Disabilities, Impairments and State of Health, 1999, to get homogenized information on the current social and demographic conditions, following the philosophy of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Weaknesses - In spite of these positive bases, EDAD 2008 still lacks comparability with other former surveys on disabilities, the Survey on Disabilities, Impairment and Handicaps 1986 and the Survey on Disabilities Survey on Disabilities, Impairments and Health Status 1999.
