Disability costs and equivalence scales in the older population

Research study that uses the dual indices of individuals’ standard of living and degree of disability, using UK survey data covering over 8,000 people who are over state pension age. The indices are used to estimate the additional income that each disabled person would need in order to reach the same standard of living as he or she would enjoy without any disability.
