The raw dataset provides the details of questionnaire data, being processed in this study by employing appropriate statistical tests. The data files have been developed in accordance to the questionnaire designed for the survey. In MS Excel 2010, the main spreadsheet is segregated into four sub-sheets viz.; personal and demographics, first SD scale (PAK), second SD scale and personal evaluation. The response data was invaded into those spreadsheets and basic descriptive statistical tests were performed in this raw dataset.

In addition to the responses for comparing data of both cultural groups, this raw data provides details of responses for the comparison based on gender and evaluation based on previous experience of using wheelchair, which was separately processed. However, to provide a protection against disclosure of participant’s information, the access to those raw data files remains restricted and can be obtained by contacting the author of this research.
