    Les besoins d’aide non comblés pour les activités de la vie quotidienne chez les personnes avec incapacité au Québec

    Based on Québec data from Statistics Canada's 2012 Canadian Survey on Disability (CSD), this study examines individual characteristics that may be related to unmet needs for assistance among people with disabilities aged 15 and over using two multivariate analysis models, one relating to "basic" activities of daily life and the other to household activities as measured in the survey. Particular attention was given to the following characteristics in interpreting the results: sex, age, severity of disability and type of disability. Other characteristics are also taken into account in the models. The analyses presented are preceded by a brief statistical portrait of the need for assistance (met or unmet) and the unmet need for assistance among the study population.
