Guide for use:

This data element relates to the age of onset of an impairment, activity limitation or participation restriction (including present at birth), which may be different from the age that a person needs assistance because of that impairment, limitation, or restriction.

The onset of disability may be later than the first appearance of a health condition that eventually results in disability.

Context:
