The need to mainstream disability in society has been well articulated at global, regional and national levels. It is widely recognized that such efforts can only be realized if statistics on disability prevalence, patterns and levels are made available at all levels of society. Disability statistics provide the basis for measuring progress in realizing the rights of persons with disabilities. This report provides statistical evidence relating to the prevalence of disability and characteristics of persons with disabilities at household levels, based on data from the 2015 Census.
