The number of people with a disability in Victoria is increasing and is expected to continue to grow due to population growth, ageing and increased life expectancy.
People with a disability form 18.4 per cent of the Victorian population.
Facts about disability, including the incidence of disability in the community, and economic and social outcomes of people with a disability are provided in this section. There is also information about the Victorian Disability Advisory Council (VDAC).
