2013 data from the ONS Opinions and Lifestyle Survey measuring indicators in the 'Fulfilling Potential' Outcomes and Indicators Framework.
‘Fulfilling Potential’ is a cross-government strategy for encouraging closer working to empower disabled people to achieve their full potential. The ‘Outcomes and Indicators Framework’ was developed to measure progress towards this vision.
This is the first official statistics publication to use data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Opinions and Lifestyle Survey to measure a number of indicators in the framework. It covers 2013 data from the employment, health and wellbeing, choice and control and inclusive communities themes.
Findings show that:
- attitudes towards disabled people in the workplace are generally positive
- around three quarters of disabled people said they did not experience any difficulties in using transport
- the majority of people think of disabled people as the same as everybody else
