Facts and figures about disability

Posted by Peter

'Making disability data work for you' shows what data has been published about disability and how that data can be used.

Published by the Government, it aims to help organisations find and use data with confidence to support their work by, for example, the better targeting of services or resources to meet the needs of disabled people.

There are three main chapters to the document:

Chapter 1 describes what data is and how data can be used (for example, to understand a problem) to help answer questions about what is happening and why

Chapter 2 shows what data is available across eight key themes (disability, education, employment, income, health and wellbeing, transport, housing and other disability data)

Chapter 3 shows how data can be used and what information it can reveal.
