Welcome! This project is run by the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics (StatsRRTC) at the UNH Institute on Disability, sponsored by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) under the RRTC grant 90RTGE0005.
This curriculum is being developed for anyone who wishes to learn more about disability statistics in the US. The current curriculum is in beta testing and maybe revised in the future. Each module will introduce you to data sources and some of the measurement issues associated with understanding the topic of disability.
