This information sheet presents some of the interim findings of the life opportunities survey regarding the social contact adults had with other people. Social contact is considered in terms of the number of close contacts people had, the number of close contacts met or spoken with in the past week and the frequency of this contact. The survey found that disabled adults were almost twice as likely as non-disabled adults to have two or less close contacts. A quarter of adults with impairments and just over one fifth of adults without impairments had not spoken or met with their close contacts as much as they would have liked in the previous week.
