Workshop: Developing Thailand's Disability Statistics
Chris presented a number of sessions at the workshop including an overview of the ABS, the status of disability statistics in Australia, National Statistical Service initiatives and information development plans. At the end of the workshop the group presented their views on the key issues that they would need to work on to achieve some tangible improvement in the quality and use of disability statistics. It is intended that the participants will visit Australia later this year to learn from the ABS and other agencies including the Australian Institute for Health and Welfare. Chris reported that the participants were an enthusiastic and friendly group of people who are keen to learn from the ABS and are looking forward to their visit to Australia.
While in Bangkok, Chris met with Lene Mikkelsen, Chief of the Statistics Development Section, United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP). Lene was very interested in the capacity building workshop as ESCAP will shortly be hosting a workshop on disability statistics for the ESCAP region in Bangkok. Joanne Hillermann, ABS Canberra, will attend this workshop.
