The 2023 Survey on Disability, Personal Autonomy and Dependency Situations in centres (EDADc 2023) is a survey aimed at people with disabilities aged six years old and over who reside in retirement homes for the elderly, centres for people with disabilities, psychiatric and long-stay geriatric hospitals and sheltered accommodation.

As was the case with the survey of households in 2020, the general aim is to meet the demand for information from the Public Administrations and numerous users such as the organisations of the Social Action Third Sector, providing a statistical basis in designing policies for people with disabilities that are aimed at increasing personal autonomy and preventing situations of dependency.

Four macro-surveys have been carried out on disability: the Survey on Disabilities, Deficiencies and Handicaps in 1986, the Survey on Disabilities, Deficiencies and State of Health in 1999 and the Survey on Disability, Personal Autonomy and Dependency Situations in 2008 and 2020.

Apart from the one conducted in 2023, in addition to the survey of households, a specific survey of centres was conducted in 2008.
