This report describes the variation between local authorities in the way their residents self-assess their day-to-day activities as limited by a health problem or disability for a year or more. Using 2011 Census data in England and Wales, this information can help in assessing social care needs and judging the proportion of the working age population who are likely to be fit for work.

2011 Census statistics provide a rich source of information about the number, distribution and characteristics of the population in England and Wales. 2011 Census Analysis products present specific analyses on a variety of topics, including ethnicity, families, health, labour market, language, migration, and national identity, and religion. In particular, many of the analyses focus on geographical variations, changes over time, and how the census differs to other data sources.
