GENERATIONS AND GENDER PROGRAMME Concepts and Guidelines
The Generations and Gender Programme (GGFP) is a system of national Generations and Gender Surveys (GGS) and contextual databases, which aims at improving the knowledge base for policy-making in the UNECE countries. The Generations and Gender Survey is a panel survey of a nationally representative sample of 18-79 year-old resident population in each participating country with at least three panel waves and an internal of three years between each wave. The contextual databases are designed to complement individual-level survey data in multi-level analyses. The Programme is co-ordinated by the UNECE Population Unit.
The main substantive goal of the GGP is to improve understanding of demographic and social development and of the factors that influence these developments, with a particular attention towards relationships between children and parents (generations) and relationships between partners (gender).
The publication presents the conceptual framework and content of the Generations and Gender Survey (GGS) and the Contextual Database of the GGP, and provide guidelines for survey fieldwork and maintaining the panel sample. The aim of this publication is to contribute to the implementation of the Generations and Gender Programme. It is also expected to be of interest to a broader audience interested in population matters and international comparative surveys.
The Report is available in ENG as a whole (548 KB, 60 pages) or by chapter.
