Education and disability: Analysis of data from 49 countries (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Gathering and Utilizing Data on Children with Disabilities in Education, at CIES 2018.

This session presents recently published results of an analysis of survey and census data on education from 49 countries. Data sources include Demographic and Health Surveys supported by the US Agency for International Development, School-to-Work Transition Surveys carried out by the International Labour Organization, and population census data compiled by IPUMS-International. The data reveal persistent disparities between persons with and without disabilities with regard to school attendance, completion of education, and literacy.
