Sources: Enquêtes Tétrafigap 1995 and 2006

Reading: Among tetraplegic individuals following a traumatic injury, 16% of those who lived at the parental home in 1995 are in a relationship in 2006; against 55% of those who reported to be living on their own in 1995. Spinal injuries curb processes of getting into a relationship, as leaving the parental home.

This chart is derived from the publication Issues in Health Economics (212), September 2015 : “The consequences of traumatic tetraplegia on couple formation”, Maude Espagnacq and Jean-François Ravaud.
