A Snapshot of Deaf People's Experiences

Disability Royal Commission Submission. Published: February 2023.
Censored version with potentially identifiable data removed.

This document provides a brief overview of the information and results of Deaf Australia’s Deaf Census 2022, an online survey that included questions about the access and inclusion experiences of Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing people who use Auslan. The Deaf Census is a global first in collecting information about Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing people at a national level. This document also provides key snapshots from in-depth informant interviews with approximately 30 Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing people from around Australia who use Auslan.

This document has been developed specifically for the Disability Royal Commission and does not contain an exhaustive view from the interviews or Census. This was due to the deadline of 31 December 2022 for submissions to the DRC.
