Welcome to the DARE Index Country Profiles Database!

Here you will find 137 individual country report cards for States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities tracking their progress in implementing digital accessibility. Each country report includes key country facts, rankings and details of the country DARE Index scores (Digital Accessibility Rights Evaluation Index), as well as country information and resources on digital accessibility.

The number of countries surveyed by region in 2020 is as follows: Africa (33 countries), Central Asia (8 countries), East Asia and Pacific (18 countries), Europe (25 countries), Latin American and Caribbean (27 countries), Middle East and North Africa (16 countries), Northern America (2 countries) and South Asia (8 countries).

Country report cards for the Republic of Guinea and the Democratic Republic of Congo are only available for the DARE Index 2018 (1st edition) due to lack of completion of the validation process for the 2020 (2nd edition). The European Union remains as a benchmark for the European countries’ data analysis.

What's New?

The DARE Index 2020 edition relies on an upgraded data collection, with 26 new countries compared to the 2018 edition, and on an expanded methodology featuring three new variables and incorporating qualitative research for the top 16 performing countries to document in-country specific laws, regulations, and policies serving as an additional informative resource. The 16 Countries Qualitative Analysis include: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Malta, Oman, Qatar, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States of America and Uruguay.

The DARE Index 2020 also offers advanced analysis, such as the relationship between ratification date and DARE Index Points and a separate comparative analysis for 105 countries that participated in 2018 and 2020 DARE Index editions. Furthermore, the two 2020 accompanying key report highlights have been translated into four languages (Arabic, English, French, and Spanish).
