Abstract
A large National and representative household survey among households and individuals with and without disabilities was carried out in Malawi in 2016 and 2017. The main purpose of the study was to map the living conditions among persons with disabilities and to compare with the non-disabled population. The study follows up a previous similar study in Malawi carried out in 2003 – 2004 and provides an opportunity to compare over a time period of ten years. This report however includes only results from the most recent study. The study demonstrates that living conditions vary in the population to the disadvantage of households with disabled members and individuals with disabilities. Generally, the study reveals consistent differences between households with and without disabled members and individuals with and without disabilities. Level of living, measured by means of a range of different indicators, is higher among non-disabled than among disabled at both levels (household and individual). The gender and urban/rural dimension also plays out among persons with disabilities, with the general finding being that rural and female are associated with lower levels on most indicators.
