General impressions
The Welsh 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 any of these long-term illnesses, health problems or disabilities limit your daily activities? (Yes - No).

The intensity of limitations is considered only in the adults' questionnaire using the items of the SF36.
Example: Does your health now limit you in one of these activities? If so, how much?
Lifting or carrying groceries
Climbing several flights of stairs
etc.
Response options (Yes, limited a lot - Yes, limited a little - No, not limited at all)
