Demand for home modifications/specialized features: the case of disabled
AbstractExisting research dealing with the presence of modifications in the homes of individuals with disabilities in Canada has found severity of disability to be negatively related to the demand for modifications, a result that appears to be counterintuitive. In this paper, a model is estimated using data from the 1991 Health and Activity Limitation Survey conducted by Statistics Canada. The results show that severity of disability has a strong positive effect on the demand for modifications/specialized features both inside a residence and those used to access a residence.
