Measuring disability using the Washington Group questions

Disability Measurement and Monitoring using the Washington Group Disability Questions.



The Washington Group was set up by the United Nations Statistical Commission. It works with countries to produce better information about people with disabilities. The Washington Group has developed useful questions for countries to use to help find out whether a person has a disability, and to help collect data and information on what the differences are between people with disabilities and people without disabilities.
