Disability Inclusive Indicators Summary
USAID’s Center for Education is committed to collecting, analyzing and using disability data in USAID Education Programming. Collecting disability data helps to ensure efforts are inclusive of children and youth with disabilities and that the Agency’s Education Policy priority of “expanding access to quality education for all, particularly marginalized and vulnerable groups” is being met.
USAID’s education standard foreign assistance indicators and Center for Education supplemental indicators should be used whenever possible to track education investments that serve people with disabilities. The indicators provide an opportunity to measure disability-inclusive programming in education through disability-targeted indicators, disability disaggregates, and other measures for tracking disability inclusion.
The document contains a snapshot of education-relevant standard and supplemental indicators that explicitly address disability inclusion. Indicators not listed in this table may still be relevant to capture the progress or achievements of a Mission’s disability-inclusive programming. For example, Supplemental Indicator 15 on education system strengthening and policy reform may be useful for programming that supports the formulation, adoption and implementation of inclusive education policies, strategies or plans though it does not specify application to inclusive education in its performance indicator reference sheet.
Missions and implementing partners are encouraged to review all Standard and Supplemental Indicators for potential relevance.
