Person-centred reporting is an opportunity to improve the evidence base regarding people with disability. It does this by placing the person at the core of understanding why experiences vary, even for people who may have similar conditions and support needs.
This report uses the AIHW’s person-centred reporting framework. This framework summarises the broad areas across which people pursue life outcomes, and the common social policies and programs (both disability-specific and mainstream) related to everyday life (Figure ABOUT.1). The individual components may interact, and the level of interaction and associated outcomes will differ with individual circumstances and environmental factors (see Defining disability).
