The indicators published in annex one of the Office for Disability Issues Annual Report are a starting point in measuring progress towards disability equality. The report is comprised of quantitative measurements and data sets designed to assist in understanding the extent to which the targets of disability equality are being met, and to aid in understanding what further measures are necessary in order to achieve disability equality. The main areas that they cover are: disabled children and young people; employment outcomes and opportunities; disability poverty; discrimination and attitudes; participation in positive activities; access and use of goods and services; accessibility and suitability of housing; and crime and justice. One finding of the indicators included in this report is that disabled people remain at higher risk of being a victim of crime across all age groups.
