Detail

The Office for Disability Issues included questions in the 2009 British Social Attitudes Survey (BSAS). The aim of these questions was to measure public attitudes towards disabled people and disability.

The results show that attitudes towards disabled people had improved since 2005, when comparable questions were last included in the British Social Attitudes Survey.
