How is the WG Short Set meant to be used?

  • The WG-SS was not designed to be used in isolation. They should be used in conjunction with other measurement tools, i.e. include the WG-SS within a larger survey or registration form to enable disaggregation of other measures (employment status, educational attainment, etc.) by disability status.
  • It can be used in a census or survey format,
  • The focus on functioning and the brevity of the tool mean that it can be rapidly and easily deployed in a variety of settings.
