How well does your country implement the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)? And how does it compare to other countries? The Zero Project Social Indicators provides data to answer these questions. Each year, the Zero Project works with Disabled Peoples International (DPI) and other partner organizations to gather data on CRPD implementation. Experts in more than 100 countries respond to questions in the Zero Project survey. The experts usually represent cross-disability organizations. Zero Project shares data from 2014 to 2018. In some years, the survey focuses on a specific theme. Examples include accessibility in 2014 and 2018, or employment in 2017.
How much of Zero Project’s data on CRPD implementation is inclusive of Deaf people? Some survey questions address all disabilities without distinction. For some of these, the comments might occasionally mention Deaf people. Other questions address issues of strong interest to Deaf and hard of hearing people. One example includes a question about television access through captions or sign interpreters. Another is a question about sign language recognition in the court system.
