Objectifs :

The Health and disability survey - institutions section (HSI) was carried out in 2009, the aim being to measure the prevalence of various disability situations, focusing in particular on new concepts developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), to assess aid needs and measure the social disadvantages experienced by these people.

For the health part, the survey was also intended to provide indicators for the five-year public health law and integrate the European survey modules produced by Eurostat, in order to improve survey comparability at European level.

It provides information on the expectations of disabled or dependent people with regard to accommodation and professional integration.

The Health and disability (HSI) survey was based on work done on the institution section of the 1998 Disability, incapacity, dependence (HID) survey.
