This information sheet presents some of the interim findings of the life opportunities survey regarding the economic life and living standards of adults. Households with at least one person with impairments were almost twice as likely as households with no people with impairments to find the repayment of loans a heavy burden. Also, households with at least one person with impairments were more likely than households with no people with impairments to be unable to afford the usual household expenses or an unexpected, but necessary, expense of £500. Among households with at least one person with an impairment sixteen per cent reported costs related to a health condition, illness, impairment or disability as a reason for difficulty managing financially.
