Annual report of the National Physical and Sensory Disability Database Committee 2012

The objective of the National Physical and Sensory Disability Database (NPSDD) is to provide an overview of the specialised health and personal social service needs of people with a physical, sensory and/or speech and language disability. The report is based on monitoring current service provision and future service requirements over a five-year period using the demographic profiles of the individuals registered on the NPSDD. This year's annual report is based on an analysis of 24,998 people registered on the database.
