The Disability Data Portal is a centralized space for quality quantitative and qualitative disability data. It is an open, accessible resource for all advocates of disability rights and inclusive sustainable development.
The portal provides a snapshot of the data globally available on people with disabilities, as well as highlighting gaps in the current body of data. It currently brings together quantitative data from 48 countries under 16 key development indicators, mostly drawn from the Sustainable Development Goals framework. The portal also hosts qualitative data collected by people with disabilities themselves.
The data on the portal covers several themes including:
- Education (SDG 4)
- Economic empowerment (SDG 1; SDG 8)
- Stigma and discrimination (SDG 1; SDG 5; SDG 16)
- Technology and innovation (SDG 17)
