Research and Data
DSS works to improve the lives and outcomes for people with disability. It is committed to the development of evidence-based policy and programs, underpinned by the Department’s research and data activities.
Within the disability sector, research and data are built upon partnerships and collaborations, inclusion of disability issues in mainstream Australian research funding and activities, effective participation of people with disability and the provision of accessible research and data that is applied in practice.
The National Disability Research and Development Agenda sets out national priorities and provides focus and direction for disability related research.
