Disability Data Advocates Taking Action (DisDATA)

Promoting data equity

The Rural Institute is supporting the development of a national disability data network. DisDATA (Disability Data Advocates Taking Action) promotes disability data equity. DisDATA members include disabled people, service providers, researchers, activists, and advocates. Members advocate for equity via the representation of disabled people at all levels of data collection.

DisDATA promotes including disability-led organizations, disabled researchers, and disability advocates in data decision making. DisDATA also hopes to connect people across shared data needs, interests and actions. We want to bridge the data divides between research, lived experience, policy development and advocacy.
