The aim of this learning brief is to consolidate the lessons and experiences of development organisations in collecting and using disability data, with a focus on the question sets developed by the Washington Group on Disability Statistics (WG). The brief focuses on the collection and use of disability data to inform planning, monitoring and evaluation of development programs.

We address common issues and concerns in implementation, as well as suggesting approaches to overcome these issues. We also include case studies from development organisations that have collected and used disability data in their programming and advocacy.
