    Abstract

    The paper considers the advantages and disadvantages of setting up a register of people with learning disabilities. It is noted that one major problem in setting up such a register is that we do not know who the majority of people with a learning disability are. It is suggested that any register needs to define clearly who is being registered, have all or nearly all the people who fit that definition registered and
    have an appropriate update system for the register.
