Are official statistics about the education and employment of persons with disabilities published at least every 10 years?


This question refers only to whether such statistics are published or not. And to their quality. It does not refer to what the statistics actually tell us about one state in contrast with another – based on those statistics. That is, it simply asks whether such statistics are collected and, additionally, if so, what is their quality?

In detail

According to many respondents’ examples, statistics are not accountable of the current situation due to Privacy, data protection and confidentiality reasons. 34.7% of respondents claim there are no official studies undertaken. Many countries highlighted this is due to:

  • Lack of consistency, inaccuracy and framework strategies in carrying surveys
  • Data collection reliant on other censuses and sources including the third sector
  • Regional differences in data collection methods
