Age of Disability: From Onset to Limitation

Articles and reports: 89-654-X2021003


This paper presents preliminary findings on the relationship between disability, age of onset or diagnosis, and age of limitation. These findings are based on questions asked for each disability type covered in the 2017 Canadian Survey on Disability (CSD). It provides a profile of the age of onset, age of limitation and the period from onset to limitation for each disability type. The age of onset and age of limitation are examined by different characteristics, including sex, severity of disability and age group.
