  • Description:
    "In November 2000, the Federal Committee on Statistical Methodology (FCSM) convened the seminar "Integrating Federal Statistical Information and Practices" to foster a greater awareness of the importance of integrating statistical information issued by different Federal agencies. Disability statistics was one of a dozen cross-cutting subject matter areas that were discussed at the FCSM seminar. This publication contains the proceedings of the session on "Integrating Comparable Measures of Disability In Federal Surveys." The first part of this publication describes programs that count people with disabilities in surveys of four Federal statistical agencies: the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Social Security Administration, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the Bureau of Justice Statistics. The second part of this publication contains the remarks of the sessions' two discussants. They recognize the significant progress made by the four Federal agencies in developing survey disability measures responsive to their own agency needs but conclude that by mandate or purpose of the data collection, the disability measures differ significantly between agencies and interagency integration of disability statistics will be difficult. The discussants propose research and funding strategies to improve disability measurement integration among Federal statistical agencies" - p. iv
