This course is grounded in the diverse methods for measuring the concept of disability and the presentation of disability across individuals and populations. Since the measurement of disability is a fundamental building block for the creation of policy, the linkage to policy processes and content will be a backdrop for discussion and course activities. The measurement of disability has a long history and is rapidly changing in the current policy environment.
