Key Facts

  • 27 per cent of respondents reported their quality of life was so good, it could not be better or very good (up 1 percentage point from 2010-11), 31 per cent reported it was good and 31 per cent also reported it was "alright". However, 7 per cent reported their quality of life was bad and the remaining 3 per cent reported their quality of their life was very bad or so bad, it could not be worse which was unchanged from 2010-11.
  • The average score for the Social Care Related Quality of Life was 18.7 (unchanged from 2010-11) out of a maximum possible score of 24. This is a composite measure calculated using a combination of questions which cover 8 different outcome domains relating to quality of life.
  • 63 per cent of service users who responded said that they were extremely or very satisfied with the care and support services they receive which was similar to 2010-11. 27 per cent said they were quite satisfied, 6 per cent said they were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied and the remaining 4 per cent said they were dissatisfied.
  • 30 per cent reported they have as much control as they want over their daily life which was unchanged from 2010-11. 45 per cent reported they have adequate control, 20 per cent reported they have some control but not enough and 5 per cent reported they had no control. All of these figures are the same as 2010-11.
  • 65,600 out of a sample of 164,300 recipients of care and social care services responded to the survey, which is a response rate of 40 per cent (down 1 percentage point from 2010-11).
