Overall in 1996, 7.2% of all Utahns were estimated to have some type of limitation of their daily
activities. In 1991 the Health Status Survey estimate was 4.9%. The questions asked in the two survey
years were virtually identical. Although differences in some aspect of the survey methodology is always a
consideration, we believe that the increase in the proportion of persons who are limited is real and was
not caused by methodological differences.
