This report is from the National study on living conditions among people with disabilities carried out in Nepal in 2014-2015.

The study covers a range of indicators on level of living, such as socio-economic indicators, economic activity, income, ownership and infrastructure, health (including reproductive health), access to health information, access to services, education, access to information, social participation, and exposure to discrimination and abuse (see all questionnaires in Appendix).
