Social policy analysis of social support for older people with disability in China is yet to be conducted. A disability rights framework with four domains - protection, economic security, support and participation - is applied to analyse the relative experiences of rights by older people with or without disability, in urban and rural areas, male and female, and with a history of paid work or not. The methods include analysis of the 2006 Second China National Sampling Survey on Disability and national ageing datasets, and the conduct of participatory fieldwork investigating older people's experiences of support. The results are relevant to academics, activists and policy officials who seek to realise disability rights in China and internationally.
