Epidemiology of Disablement

Chronic illness is the underlying cause for 45% of all disability1; 20% of all disability is attributable to injury2.

Rates of occurrence highest among low income groups.

  • burden of care costs

  • lack of access

  • linkage to other vulnerable groups: elderly, gender, minority groups

Rates across age cohorts suggest significantly higher rates of acquired disability among poor Americans.

Cannot account for “directional ambiguity” in disability statistics.

  • Relevance of disability to the poverty dialogue: Summary

    • Disability and poverty are inextricably linked;

    • Represents a significant population effect;

    • Impact likely more pronounced in the developing world.

  • rates range widely as a function of definition as in other international analyses;

  • generally below the 10 to 15% rates seen in Western nations based on activity limitation definitions and the 5-10% estimates for severe disability (WHO, 1982; Helander, 1995)

  • stability of estimates given sample sizes an issue


Slide20 l.jpg

LSMS Potential

  • Deficits in surveillance

  • Disability rights

Disability Rights & Economic Empowerment

  • Living standard statistics as extension of public policy and planning

  • Demography as “political arithmetic”

  • Social inequities as the proper point of emphasis in disability statistics

Statistics as a Tool of Reform:

Disability Meanings

Disability Meanings

  • Changing conceptions of disability

  • Impairment historically associated with suffering and defect

  • Emerging paradigms of disability challenge cultural conceptions of “normality”


Slide23 l.jpg

Disability Meanings

Disability and Poverty in the Developing World: Perspective from Disability Statistics

  • Disability health agenda linked to broader civil and human rights themes;

  • Intersection of disablement and poverty of special interest since it underscores structural relationships within societies;

  • Statistical data can galvanize still nascent rights movements.
