By the Washington Group on Disability, 2010.
Disability as an umbrella term refers to problems, such as
impairment, activity limitation or participation restrictions that
indicate the negative aspects of functioning. While it is important to
collect information on all aspects of the disablement process, it is
possible to do so in censuses or surveys not dedicated to disability.
However, important information on selected aspects of disability can
obtained from censuses.
The Washington Group has developed a question set for use on national Censuses for gathering information
about limitations in basic activity functioning among national
populations. The questions were designed to provide comparable data
cross-nationally for populations living in a great variety of cultures
with varying economic resources.
