Count Everyone, Include Everyone: Why Accessible and Representative Data Matters for the Disability Community

Access to accurate, inclusive, and representative data is becoming increasingly important to the disability community. While there has been an increase in efforts to include disability tabulations in federal data, accessibility issues persist. This webinar will discuss the importance of federal disability data to the disability community, include key disability statistics from surveys such as the American Community Survey and the 2020 Census, spotlight federal agencies that track disability data, and integrate multi-stakeholder perspectives to identify gaps in disability data and propose recommendations to ensure that everyone is counted and included moving forward.
