Description: This article stresses the need for disability-disaggregated data to highlight where deprivation and disparity of levels of inclusion exist. It showcases a selection of data from the Disability Data Portal illustrating the multiple and intersecting forms of exclusion and discrimination that people with disabilities experience. In conclusion, the article stresses the need for accessible collection of data that is up-to-date, accessible, comparable, and disaggregated to highlight trends and differences in the exclusion and marginalisation facing people with disability, and to monitor and evaluate the success of the 2030 Agenda of ‘leaving no one behind’.
