Gender Statistics

Statistics that adequately reflect differences and inequalities in the situation of women and men in all areas of life

Statistics that adequately reflect differences and inequalities in the situation of women and men in all areas of life. Gender statistics are defined by the sum of the following characteristics: (a) data are collected and presented disaggregated by sex as a primary and overall classification; (b) data are reflecting gender issues; (c) data are based on concepts and definitions that adequately reflect the diversity of women and men and capture all aspects of their lives; and (d) data collection methods take into account stereotypes and social and cultural factors that may induce gender biases (some examples of sex bias in data collected are: underreporting of women’s economic activity, undercounting of girls, their births or their deaths, or underreporting of violence against women).
