Global disability data collection has progressed considerably in recent years. However, in a world increasingly awash with data, too many countries still have poor disability data, and persons with disabilities are still hidden because of a lack of existing disability data.
‘Why Disability Data Matters’ aims to show why it is essential that everyone has access to high-quality disability data. The report spotlights key data initiatives achieved by Leonard Cheshire within each of the Global Disability Summit 2022 thematic areas. It seeks to highlight the meaningful actions and commitments needed to advance inclusive and disaggregated data at the Global Disability Summit.
