Gender statistics is an area that cuts across traditional fields of statistics to identify, produce and disseminate statistics that reflect the realities of the lives of women and men, and policy issues relating to gender.
Statistics and indicators on the situation of women and men are needed to describe the role of women and men in the society, economy and family, formulate and monitor policies and plans, monitor changes, and inform the public. We provide an institutional framework for the work on gender statistics in the UNECE region.
UNECE activities in gender statistics include:
- knowledge sharing: biannual work sessions on gender statistics
- methodological work: survey tools, handbooks, indicators
- data collection and dissemination: database
- capacity development: training tools, workshops
