, : The prevalence of locomotor disability and handicap in the cape peninsula south africa part i. the colored population of bishop lavis. South African Medical Journal 69(6): 349-352

A door-to-door survey to identify the locomotor disabled was carried out on 33.35% of the so-called coloured population in a low socio-economic area of the Cape Peninsula (9112 people). The prevalence rate of locomotor disability was 11.2/1000. The main causes of diability were illness (44.1%) and trauma (41.2%); the former resulted mostly from cerebrovascular accidents (15.7%) and poliomyelitis (15.7%). Of the disabled persons 11.8% were 15 years of age or less, 57.8% between the ages of 16 and 59 years and 30.4% were more than 60 years. Of those in the working-age group 15% were employed. Few of the unemployed had hobbies or interests or had any contact with health or social services.
