Abstract

The Disability Data Initiative (ddi) is a new initiative that aims to review the availability of disability data in national censuses and household surveys and analyzes such data when disability questions are internationally comparable. Its 2021 Disability Data Report provides (i) a systematic analysis of the disability questions in national censuses and household surveys globally from 2008 to 2019; and (ii) for 41 countries nationally representative estimates of disability prevalence and indicators disaggregated across disability status. Indicators cover education, work, health, standard of living and multidimensional poverty. The report also includes country briefs.
