    Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) being National Statistical Organization has taken initiative of including Disability module in PSLM questionnaire and after getting approval to Technical Committee for Disability Module designed by Washington group was incorporated in PSLM District Level survey. As Disability is a rare event, therefore for its true coverage and representation, the usual sample size of PSLM survey i.e. 80,000 households has been enhanced to 195,000 households which will enable PBS to develop disability estimates at the district level with desired reliability. The field work of PSLM District Level Survey 2019-20 has been completed and results will be available by the end of January, 2021.)
