Gender Statistics and Sex-Disaggregated Data
Quality gender statistics, sex-disaggregated data and other relevant knowledge are key to achieving gender equality. UN Women works to increase the collection and analysis of such statistics and data, as well as to expand its use in policy development and implementation.
Bridging SDG data gaps
Working with UN partners, UN Women helps Member States to fill important gaps in data relevant to the Sustainable Development Agenda, and to use that data in developing and implementing policies and programmes to accelerate progress on gender equality. This includes supporting Member States in increasing production of gender statistics and sex-disaggregated data, as well as improving access to it.
Building evidence and knowledge
UN Women works to produce new research and evidence to fill critical knowledge gaps, especially to deliver on the principle of “leaving no one behind” and to build programming based on evidence of what works. For this, we provide training to strengthen the capacities of data producers and users, including on the use of non-traditional data sources.
Mainstreaming gender in data collection
UN Women leads efforts to make gender a mainstream consideration in the collection of data across the UN System, as well as within national statistics offices, research organizations, civil society organizations and the private sector.
