Disability Statistics Compendium and Conference Announced

The NIDILRR-funded Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics (StatsRRTC) will combine its State-of-the-Science Conference with the release of the 2016 Annual Disability Statistics Compendium, February 13th and 14th. The two-day event will be held at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC. On the first day, the conference will bring together scientists, administrators, and staff from disability programs, and leaders from disability policy and advocacy communities to discuss the state of disability statistics and how to move the field forward. The second day will feature the release of the Compendium, a web-based tool that pools disability statistics published by various federal agencies, with related panel discussions. Registration is free for both days, with webstreaming available for the Compendium release and discussions.
