This one day-course is designed for researchers that are interested in researching disability inequalities. It aims to provide researchers with a firm understanding of the strengths and challenges of quantitative and qualitative approaches in the field of disability research. The course will cover topics surrounding different models of disability, and their implications for measurement. Participants will also be introduced to existing cross-sectional and longitudinal UK resources that can be used to document and/or explain disability inequalities. Limitations of existing data will be reviewed, alongside with priorities for future data collection. The course will also focus on qualitative data collection covering a wide range of topics such as inclusive methods and lived experiences, longitudinal approaches, intersectional designs as well as sampling of hard-to-access disabled populations. The course will therefore provide a well-rounded introduction on key challenges for those interested in primary data collection and/or secondary data analysis of existing data to systematically research disability inequalities. This course is ideal for disability researchers, social scientists interested in social inequality, and professionals from the third sector looking to broaden their knowledge on disability research.
