A profile of children with affirmative responses to the 2016 census questions on difficulties with activities of daily living / by Thomas Charters, Christoph Schimmele and Rubab Arim.: CS36-28-0001/2022-3-6E-PDF
"This study presented a sociodemographic profile of children aged 0 to 14 years with affirmative responses by parents to the questions on the 2016 Census long-form questionnaire about difficulties with activities of daily living. The filter questions, derived from the Disability Screening Questions, were designed to identify persons who are likely to have a disability, for an adult population aged 15 years and older. Therefore, relatively little is known about their suitability for a child population. About 13.5% of children were identified as having one or more affirmative responses to the filter questions. The sociodemographic associations between the presence of any affirmative responses, and child and family characteristics were largely in line with findings from previous research on child disability, although some unexpected findings were noted. Given that these filter questions were repeated on the 2021 Census long-form questionnaire, future research is required to further assess their suitability for generating an appropriate sampling frame for prospective child disability surveys"--Abstract, page 1.
