Bhutan: Poor children at higher risk of disabilities, says study

Aug 28, 2012

Disability prevalence is higher among children of mothers with no education, among poor children and those living in the rural areas, says a report of two-stage disability assessment survey among children aged 2-9 years conducted in 2011.

The study says that the most significant factors associated with disability were the child’s age, the mother’s education and the household’s income. The tests revealed that the association of factors with mild disability was statistically different than the association with moderate or severe disabilities.

The major finding was that the probability of having a moderate or severe disability was greatly reduced with the mother’s education, while the probability of a mild disability was not affected.
