Access to information is key for improving the position of persons with disabilities in society. Familiarity with state regulations regarding access to information could be influenced by communication with state authorities concerning the rights of persons with disabilities, especially access to information. Familiarity with these regulations and the specified communication with state authorities might be affected by a number of background variables, such as age and education completed. To clarify relations among these variables, which would enable state authorities and other relevant institutions to define and implement policies that might improve matters, there is a need to prepare and analyze appropriate datasets concerning them. This paper describes such a dataset, preliminary in nature, obtained from answers to part of a questionnaire administered to persons with disabilities living in Serbia. Persons with innate or acquired physical and/or sensory disability were included in the research. This dataset contains raw data of nine variables, as well as analyzed data of ten variables derived from most of the raw data. Besides correlative analyses, the dataset was previously analyzed using PLS (partial least squares) path modeling. To reuse the dataset, a path model with Bayesian estimations may be applied, whose outcomes for different model priors (prior distributions) may be compared to those of the PLS path modeling. The dataset also contains data of two variables that may be included in further research.
