Inequalities relating to health and the life course: disability, mental illness and older age

In this paper for the global thematic consultation on inequalities, Emma Samman and Laura Rodriguez-Takeuchi of ODI discuss the data constraints associated with ‘mainstreaming’ sources of inequality including older age, disability and mental illness in a new post-2015 agreement.

The paper discusses currently available data and its limitations, constraints to better data collection and efforts needed to adjust key international survey instruments – the World Bank’s Core Welfare Indicator Questionnaire (CWIQ) and Living Standards and Measurement Survey (LSMS), Macro International’s Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and the UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) – to collect reliable data on these sources of inequality, alongside other household indicators.
