The participants, who included statisticians from offices in national statistical systems in addition to representatives of the disability community, academic researchers in the field of disability statistics and users of disability data, were provided background documents to facilitate the discussion of the issues. Those documents represented materials from the U.N., the World Health Organization and Eurostat and included the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 1, and the International Classification of Functioning, Disabilities and Health (ICF).
