Background: The World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS) 2.0 is widely used in both research and clinical practice. Aim of this study is: A pilot study to develop WHODAS 2.0 (36-items version) normative data for the orthopedic conditions in Indian population. Methods and Materials: The WHODAS 2.0 consists of six domains (Cognition, Mobility, Self-care, Getting along, Life activities and Participation). A total of 50 patients were invited to fill in the WHODAS2.0. Five age groups (18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54 and 55-64 years) were constructed. Descriptive statistics including mean and standard deviation were calculated used to present the normative data. Results: This study shows that we can understand the health status or status of disability with administering WHODAS 2.0 very effectively. All the domains of WHODAS 2.0 are well-defined and understand the problems with orthopaedic conditions. Conclusion: Significant differences in WHODAS 2.0 scores were found between men and women and between different age groups. This WHODAS 2.0 normative data provides as a benchmark of health status for participants with orthopaedic conditions.
