This report presents findings from secondary analyses regarding respondents who reported having a disability or a long-term health condition from two national surveys. These surveys were: Writing Themselves In 4, which focused on the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and asexual (LGBTQA+) young people aged 14-21 years in Australia; and Private Lives 3, which focused on the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) adults in Australia. Both surveys were conducted late 2019 and collected data relating to a range of health and social experiences and included questions relating to disability.
