Good day! I would like to request information regarding:

1.) The number of registered persons with disability (PWD) in the Philippines from 2013-2016 per geographical area and disability type

Akari 02:18 PM, Sep 25, 2017

Good day! 

I write to follow up on my request that I sent a week ago. I also write to confirm if my request has been received as well as to reiterate my interest in getting the  data I have requested.

I need the data on the number of PWDs in the Philippines per geographical region and disability type from 2013-2016. I plan to use the data to write a report shedding light on how many Filipino PWDs there are, some whose conveniences must be catered by certain offices such as the Department of Transportation. 

I hope to get the data. It would be a lot of help because the data would definitely strengthen my report.
