Chapter 6 - Conclusions
Conclusions from the Life Opportunities Survey Wave Two Report, Part 1. In general, analyses in this report have shown similarities between the onset-acquired and offset adults in terms of the impairments and severity of these impairments they had reported, as well as their economic activity status and income over the two waves. Analyses of participation restriction revealed that onset-acquired adults and offset adults reported different experiences in terms of changes in the barriers they faced at Wave One and Wave Two. The contrast between onset-acquired adults and offset adults on the one hand, and adults with impairments at both waves on the other, are discussed in the chapter and will conclude with a discussion about Wave Three and the future direction of the LOS.
