         Uganda

   How was the pre-test conducted
A total of 25 respondents were interviewed.
This 25 was purposively selected and it included people
with and without different disabilities.
Respondents from Disability Institutions and Households
were interviewed.
The interview occurred where the respondents were
staying, and not from the office.
The respondents were asked all the questions, and if there
were people who were staying with the disabled they were
asked proxy questions.
Only the Urban residents were interviewed, as it was not
easy to get to the Rural Mountains.

   Findings on the mobility question

 Majority of the responses are falling in category A
and B and there are about 8 % of responses falling
in Category N. This shows that the questionnaire
was understood and it is showing consistency.
About 64 % of responses are missing in the proxy
report, the reason being that;
   1. Some respondent were not disabled

  2. Some were staying alone, so there
were no one to ask.
   3. Some refused to carry on with the
questions.

 The responses which fell in Category N is
because the respondent were all blind.

Discussions and interpretations of the results
                Why did the question work?
 The questions were easy and straight forward especially
 this one on Mobility.
 Mostly is because of the way the introduction was done,
 that they were told that some question will look strange
 and seems to be repetitive.
 Many surveys are being done in our country so the
 respondents are used to that.
 Our people are poor so they believe that if they answered
 well they may be given something in return.
 Urban residents understand easily as compared to Rural
 residents who most of them are illiterate

           the results cont
              Problems encountered
 Education played a big role, as it was easy for
those educated to understand the questions
without the interviewers repeating.
 Age was also important as younger people
understood well as compared to the older people.
 The questionnaire was too long and some people
were irritated with that especially those older and
those without disability.
           Lesotho Cognitive test

Discussions and interpretations of the
             results cont
 The question on ‘why did you answer that way’ was
the one which was giving a lot of troubles as people
did not understand it and needed clarifications on.
The N category is made up of ‘Yes’ on “Disability,Aid
and Problem walking distance” and a ‘No’ on
“Problem Step, Stand, Sit OR Stoop”. So it was
mostly the blind respondents falling in this category
as they responded as being disabled, and using Aid
but don’t have problems with step, stand, sit OR
stoop’.
         Lesotho Cognitive test

Discussions and interpretations of the
             results cont


 From interviewer’s debriefings it was found
that older people are used to questions being
repeated, and also it was easy to interview
educated and younger people.
