Abstract

Introduction Our purpose in writing this paper is twofold. First, we wish to disseminate information about an ESRC‐funded research project at the University of Warwick which aims to contribute to the improvement of data sources on disabled children and their households. The study began in February 2006 and will take 12 months to complete. Second, we want to encourage interested researchers and practitioners from all relevant disciplines to participate in the consultation stage of the project. Although the study is primarily concerned with UK data sources, contributions to the consultation from other countries will be most welcome allowing us to learn from their experience. Because there are a wide range of users of research with legitimate interests in the development of more robust data on disabled children and their households, we want to take all reasonable steps to ensure that their experience and opinions inform the course of the project and its findings. This approach has been shaped by the National Data Strategy currently being developed by the ESRC. This strategy will help to identify gaps in existing and planned data resources in a number of prioritized research areas. Background The limitations of UK national data on disabled
