Forum on "UN Convention and system of statistic indicators for monitoring the status of persons with disabilities – Rome, 12 October 2015 ISFOL Auditorium

In the framework of the dedicated day promoted by the Technical and Scientific Committee of the Observatory on Disability (OND), the work of  Working group 8 "Reporting and statistics" was presented, with the interventions of Carlo Francescutti, Alessandro Solipaca and Alessandra Battista. It concerned the creation of a system of indicators from the available statistical sources, able to measure the gap in terms of equality between the status of persons with disabilities and the rest of the population. The OND strategy on the monitoring of the implementation of the UN Convention and the phases of the work concerning the creation and selection of indicators and the elaboration of a development plan for statistical information were described. In particular, the themes of dissemination of the results and development of new indicators were addressed by the interventions of Roberta Caldin and Carlo Giacobini. Questions and observations from the audience contributed to enriching the discussion and debate.
