The question was changed from: &quot;Do you have any health problems or disabilities that you expect will last for more than a year?&quot; to the standardised version: &quot;Do you have any physical or mental health conditions or illnesses lasting or expecting to last 12 months or more?&quot;.</li><li>The Annual Population Survey asks people if they experience any health conditions from a list and respondents are able to select multiple health conditions. If an individual responds with ‘difficulty in hearing’ they will be included in the people with a difficulty in hearing (either as their main long term health condition or alongside a different main long term health condition). Respondents are also asked: “Which of these is your main health problem/disability?” If an individual answers a ‘difficulty in hearing’ then only these individuals are included in the people whose main long term health condition is a difficulty in hearing group.</li><li>Difficulty in hearing is considered without the use of a hearing aid.</li><li>Data is subject to sampling variation.</li><li>Estimates are based on small sample sizes and are therefore subject to a margin of uncertainty. Due to these small sample sizes, some of the differences between years may not be statistically significant. Therefore, these estimates and differences between them should be treated with caution.</li></ol>
