MOBILITY OF THE DISABLED IN AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT

This study conducted in Leeds was designed to discover how and to what extent people with arthritis in an urban area are restricted by their disability from carrying on their normal day to day activities in their local environment. Their mobility, social interaction and use of local facilities have been compared with those of a sample of able-bodied subjects. Details are given of the methodology used in the survey, characteristics of the study populations, e.g. health conditions, age and sex, marital status, degree of handicap, household composition, working status, income, housing type and facilities, tenure, mobility on foot, availability of vehicular transport, community involvement, use of local facilities, and attitude to disability.
