Adult Health in Great Britain, 2012

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)

Key findings in 2012:

• Unemployed people (those out of work but looking for work) were almost twice as likely as those in employment to have a limiting long-standing illness or disability (17% compared with 9%)

• People with higher incomes were less likely than those on lower incomes to have a limiting long- standing illness or disability. In 2012, just 6% of those with an income of £50,000 or more had a limiting long-standing illness or disability, compared with 30% of those with an income of up to £10,000.

• As expected, health was strongly associated with age. In 2012, 67% of those aged 75 and over had a long-standing illness or disability. This compared with 14% of those aged 16 to 24.

• People from white ethnic groups were almost twice as likely as those from non-white ethnic groups to have a limiting long-standing illness or disability (20% compared with 11%).

• People living in Wales (26%) were most likely to have a limiting long-standing illness or disability, when compared with other regions of Great Britain.
