Number of people with a long-term health problem or disability

This variable records the number of people in the household who may or may not have a long-term health problem or disability.

A long-term health problem or disability that limits a person's day-to-day activities, and has lasted, or is expected to last, at least 12 months. This includes problems that are related to old age. People were asked to assess whether their daily activities were limited a lot or a little by such a health problem, or whether their daily activities were not limited at all.
