We compare three major UK surveys, BHPS, FRS and ELSA, in terms of the picture they give of the relationship between disability and receipt of the Attendance Allowance (AA) benefit. Using the different disability indicators available in each survey, we use a structural equation approach involving a latent concept of disability in which probabilities of receiving AA depend on disability. Despite major differences in design, once sample composition is standardised through statistical matching, the surveys deliver similar results for the model of disability and AA receipt. Provided surveys offer a sufficiently wide range of disability indicators, the detail of disability measurement appears relatively unimportant.
