Presentation: Putting the Washington Group on Disability Statistics questions into practice

There is a lack of internationally comparable data on disability. As a result decision makers commonly overlook the inclusion of people with disability in policies and programs. The lack of data also makes it impossible to benchmark and monitor progress globally. In this presentation, Jennifer H. Madans Ph.D., Associate Director for Science, National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and Mitchell Loeb, Health Scientist, NCHS from the secretariat of the Washington Group on Disability Statistics deliver a technical session on how to use the Washington Group questions in monitoring data systems and how to disaggregate data by disability status.

Supported by DFAT and hosted by the Nossal Institute for Global Health, Denis Driscoll Theatrette, University of Melbourne on Thursday 30th April 2015
