Dr Mark Carew, our Senior Researcher, talks about the impact of quality disability data.
Around 15% of the world’s population is made up of people with a disability. So you’d think there would be a large amount of good quality global data available to help us understand barriers and limitations. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Such data is essential in ensuring people with disabilities are not left behind. This is particularly important as work continues globally on the 30 Sustainable Development Goals.
