This fact sheet presents provisional information on key indicators and trends at a national level from the 2005-2006 National Family Health Survey (NFHS-3), the third in the NFHS series of surveys. The survey provides information on population, health and nutrition in India and each of its 29 states, based on a sample of households which is representative at national and state levels. NFHS-3 provides trend data on key indicators and includes information on several new topics, such as HIV/AIDS-related behaviour and the health of slum populations. For the first time, NFHS-3 also provides information on men and unmarried women. In addition, HIV prevalence is measured at the national level and for selected states. The NFHS-3 fieldwork was conducted by 18 Research Organisations between December 2005 and August 2006

INDIAN ACCESSIBLE DISABILITY DATA (I-ADD)

Expand view

This interactive database aims to create a 'bridge' between service providers and persons with disability in India. Whilst India has signed and ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, reliable information is still needed to enable planning of rehabilitation services in rural and urban areas
Two types of databases are available on this website. One is an initiative of Rehabilitation Council of India in collaboration with CBR Network which provides a database on non government organizations, disabled people’s organizations, special schools, inclusive schools, community based organizations, parents groups, self-help groups and training institutes working in disability sector in India. The second database is an initiative of CBR NETWORK (South Asia) and Karnataka Child Rights Commission which provides data available through disability registers-village disability register and urban disability register. This data provides information on the individuals with disabilities and their needs, and also provides profiles of village panchayaths in India
This information can be used to assess the extent of human resource development required, allocating funds for programmes such as community-based rehabilitation, inclusive education, early intervention, skill development and employment opportunities
