Analysis of Income Inequality and Disability in China

Rachel Garaghty on November 29, 09

There are wide differences in per capita household income between Han (majority group members) and ethnic minority group members in China. Conventional wisdom suggests that much if not all of the disparity can be explained by rural vs urban residence. The vast majority of ethnic minority group members in China, who account for less than 11 percent of the overall population, can be found in rural, less developed areas of the country. A significant impediment to full participation in income earning activities particularly in the rural sector is poor health and specific forms of disability.

The People Development Overlooks

Rachel Garaghty on November 11, 09

I think it's safe to say that when most people think about international development, they don't consider people with disabilities to be a very important factor. But, given that approximately 10% of the world's population experiences some type of disability, and that people with disabilities are most often among the poorest of poor, it becomes clear that international development agendas simply cannot afford to leave out people with disabilities.
