One-fifth (20%) of people in Scotland have a disability or a long-term health condition affecting their day-to-day activities. For ‘non-white’ ethnic minorities, the figure is 9% – the data is not available by country of birth or other characteristics, so European ethnic minorities are not accounted for.
In Grampian, 16% of the population has a disability or long-term health condition, including only 4% of people from ‘non-white’ ethnic backgrounds.
