General impressions
The Scottish Health Survey is not an ICF-based, "pure" disability survey. It focuses on general health, illnesses, food intake and the use of either - alcohol and nicotine.
There are only very few questions about disability using mainly general statements if there is a disability and restriction in every-day activities.
Example: Do you have a long-standing physical or mental condition or disability that has troubled you for at least 12 months, or that is likely to affect you for at least 12 months?
1 Yes
2 No
Does (name of condition) limit your activities in any way?
1 Yes
2 No
