Need to move house

Almost 1 in 10 people with disability (9%) have moved house because of their condition or age (Figure 1). People with severe or profound disability (14%) are more than twice as likely as people with other disability (6%) to have done so.

About 1 in 4 (25%) people with disability have moved more than once because of their condition or age (Figure 1). Younger people (aged under 65) with disability (34%) are more likely than older people (aged 65 and over) with disability (11%) to have done so.
