This report is from the National study on living conditions among people with disabilities carried out in Nepal in 2014-2015. The study was carried out as a household survey with two-stage stratified sampling, including a screening/listing procedure using the Washington Group on Disability Statistics 6 questions, one Household questionnaire administered to households with (Case HHs) and without disabled members (Control HHs), one Individual Case questionnaire administered to individuals who were found to qualify as being disabled in the screening (Case individuals), and an Individual Control questionnaire administered to matched non-disabled individuals in the Control HHs (Control individuals). The study covers a range of indicators on level of living, such as socioeconomic indicators, economic activity, income, ownership and infrastructure, health (including reproductive health), access to health information, access to services, education, access to information, social participation, and exposure to discrimination and abuse (see all questionnaires in Appendix).
