The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP) is a new initiative to build a repository of data on disability and rehabilitation. The mission of ADDEP is to improve and enable research among researchers, policymakers, and practitioners by providing access to disability and rehabilitation data.

ADDEP data can be used to better understand and inform the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and other disability policies with the goal of improving the lives and conditions of people with disabilities.

In addition to providing access to data for research and analysis, ADDEP strives to offer user support and community outreach to enable data to be optimally used by the widest audience.
