National Disability Prevalence Survey

National Disability Prevalence Survey

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) presents this final report on the 2016 National Disability Prevalence Survey/Model Functioning Survey (NDPS/MFS 2016). NDPS/MFS 2016 was implemented in consonance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and adopts the Model Disability Survey (MDS) which was grounded in the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). It defines disability as the outcome of the interaction between a person’s health related status and the physical, human-built, attitudinal and socio-political environment in which the person lives. Therefore, disability is regarded as multi-dimensional and interactive.
