Context statement: Indicator of social participation restriction for people with disability, many of whom are restricted from full engagement in social activities because of mobility or communication limitations.
In 2018, 92.4% of people with a disability aged 15–64 living in households had social participation away from home in the previous 3 months, and 95.1% had social participation at home. These rates have changed little since 2003 (AIHW 2020).
