Outcome 4 Indicator 1: UN-Women plans to disaggregate results by “leave no-one behind” categories for this indicator. This was piloted in 2018 and will be rolled out in 2019.
For this indicator, the global average is derived from country surveys data that include women from different ages (mostly 15-49), different partner status (mostly all women vs. ever married/partnered) and women who experience different forms of violence (mostly physical and or/sexual by any perpetrator vs. by a partner and including other forms, i.e. psychological).Back

Outcome 4 Indicator 2: UN-Women plans to disaggregate results by “leave no-one behind” categories for this indicator. This was piloted in 2018 and will be rolled out in 2019.
For this indicator, the global average is derived mostly from latest available Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) that include comparable data. Data from some other relevant national household surveys are included where data from DHS was not available. These latter surveys may include samples with different age ranges or partner status as compared with DHS, and some of them include only a sample of women (not men).Back
