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
- inform the public
We provide an institutional framework for work on gender statistics in the UNECE region. Our activities include facilitating the development of statistical standards and supporting national statistical offices to improve their capacity to produce and disseminate gender-relevant statistics. We also collect and disseminate data (see the UNECE Statistical Database) to promote gender analysis.
