Abstract

[This chapter describes the process and results of the cognitive testing of the Washington Group’s and UNICEF’s questions on childhood disability in Mumbai. Taken together as a set in order to identify the overall prevalence of children with disabilities, the questions performed very well. However, the testing did reveal certain modifications that improved the question in the Indian context, and provided a deeper understanding of the response process that can be useful when analyzing quantitative data collected using these questions.]
