Supplementary notes

This statistic only includes disabled people who are using LSS services. The classification of disability types derives also from LSS. LSS is "an entitlement law that guarantees good living conditions for people with extensive and permanent functional impairment, ensuring that they receive the help they need in daily life and that they can influence the support and services they receive."
