The Guatemala National Disability Survey (ENDIS) was undertaken to gain disability disaggregated population data and understanding of the lived situation for people with disabilities in order to inform and motivate evidence-based advocacy, policy and service planning.
The study had three components:
- A population based survey to estimate the prevalence of disabilities.
- A case-control study to compare people with and without disabilities in terms of their socio-economic situation and their use of education, health, water and sanitation, and employment services.
- A qualitative component to explore the conceptual, cultural and social interpretation and responses to disability.
