Office for National Statistics, 2010
The Life Opportunities Survey (LOS) is a major new national survey of disability in Britain. The survey is being carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on behalf of the Office for Disability Issues (ODI). The ODI leads the government's vision of achieving equality for disabled people. This means disabled people should have the same choices and opportunities as non-disabled people. ODI is a cross-government organisation that works with government departments, disabled people and a wide range of external groups to realise this vision. LOS is a longitudinal survey, this means it will track the experiences of disabled people over time to assess transitions through key life stages, such as moving from childhood to adulthood or in and out of work.
