Written and hosted by Claudia Cappa, Booklet 4 assists UNICEF staff and their partners to understand why data on disabled children are currently inadequate, the difficulties that surround the gathering of high-quality data on disabled children, and why there is a real need to improve the collection, analysis, dissemination and use of disability data. In this webinar/booklet you can read about how a lack of high-quality data is adversely affecting evidence on child disability, and how this compromises the ability of countries to ensure disabled children achieve their true potentials. Further, it discusses what the key considerations are for data collection, analysis and dissemination, the main challenges to gathering child-disability data and, finally, how reliable data are central to advocating for anti-discriminatory policy, and to foster the inclusion of disability on political agendas.
