The prevalence of physical conditions, diseases, congenital and perinatal conditions, injuries, poisoning, and mental health and behavioural disorders means that people living with disabilities are a significant portion of our Australian society. In 2012, 4.2 million people or 18.5 per cent of Australians reported living with a disability and an additional 4.7 million people or 21 per cent reported having a long-term health condition that did not restrict their everyday activities. Furthermore, most people reporting as living with disabilities do not receive a Disability Support Pension (in 2010-11, 818,850 people received this payment).
