Abstract:

This paper compares and contrasts the experiences of deprivation and disadvantage of households with a disabled person from 1999 to 2012. Data is drawn from two comparable datasets: the 1999 and 2012 Poverty and Social Exclusion Surveys of Britain. The trend at each survey period is consistent for most of the indicators. The experience of deprivation and disadvantage for households with disabled people has considerably worsened over the past 13 years, and at the most disadvantaged remain those households with a combination of disabled adult(s) and child(ren). Disabled people are now firmly established as being among the 'poorest of the poor'.
