SDG Advocacy Toolkit: Disability indicators.


Now is the time to act.

Please share this list of disability indicators – developed in partnership by the UN, IDA and IDDC – with your National Statistical Agency. These indicators intend to measure the progress made for persons with disabilities in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The SDGs and targets in the outcome document agreed by UN Member States on 1 August 20151 includes seven targets which explicitly refer to persons with disabilities. 

Monitoring the seven targets mentioning disability will require specific disability indicators and disaggregation of indicators by disability.

At the national level, additional indicators may be needed to implement the disability-related SDG targets.
