Résumé :

The Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) is a national survey designed to collect information on adults and children who have a disability, that is, whose everyday activities are limited because of a condition or health problem. Funded by Human Resources Development Canada and conducted by Statistics Canada, PALS provides essential information on the prevalence of various disabilities, the supports for persons with disabilities, their employment profile, their income and their participation in society. This information will be used by all levels of government, associations, researchers and nongovernment organizations to support the planning of services needed by persons with activity limitations in order to participate fully in society.

Data on persons with disabilities were last collected in 1991, when the Health and Activity Limitation Survey (HALS) was conducted. A new survey was therefore necessary to meet the need for up-to-date, more detailed information that will better reflect the reality of persons with disabilities. This ten-year gap between the two surveys offered an opportunity to review the approach and develop a new survey strategy. Accordingly, to better identify the PALS target population, major changes were made to the structure of the sample and the filter questions identifying persons with disabilities. As a result, comparisons cannot be made between the 1986 and 1991 HALS surveys, and the 2001 PALS. On the other hand, these filter questions may now serve as the standard for identifying persons with disabilities in other Statistics Canada surveys, so that for the first time, it will be possible to compare information on persons with disabilities from one survey to another.
