Disability Statistics Country Register: Tools and Reports

Improvements in the collection, analysis and availability of disability statistics are critical to promoting sound and evidence-based decision-making in program development and policy-making. The importance of data for the development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of social integration policies for persons with disabilities is reflected in article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and in the 2030 Sustainable Development Plan, which called for the classification of indicators by disability status.

The Knowledge Exchange Portal aims at documenting country practices and monitoring their development in the Arab States through the ESCWA Disability Statistics Program established in 2016-2017, which aims to develop national programs by building the capacity of Member States to produce comparable data.
