Summary

While the majority reported no difficulty using public or specialized transit, this depended on the severity of disability— the prevalence of experiencing “a lot” of difficulty increased from 3%E of those with mild disabilities to 29% of those with very severe disabilities. [...] In the CSD, the age distribution of persons with disabilities is adjusted to match to the age composition of the Canadian population, using the following age groups: 15 to 24 years, 25 to 44 years, 45 to 64 years, 65 to 74 years, and 75 years or older. [...] The score was calculated by taking into account the number of disability types, the level of difficulty, and the frequency of the activity limitation. [...] Persons with disabilities aged 25 to 44 years reported $21,480—57% of the amount reported by those without disabilities ($37,560); at ages 45 to 64 years, the median for persons with disabilities was $22,890—56% of the median for those without disabilities ($40,910). [...] Use of aids or assistive devices increases with severity of disability The use of at least one aid or assistive device generally increased with the severity of the disability.
