gender mainstreaming in statistics

Definition

Gender mainstreaming in national statistics means that gender issues and gender-based biases are taken into account systematically, in the production of all official statistics and at all stages of data production. In this process, all data – both those on individuals as well as those not directly related to individuals – are collected, compiled and analysed in light of the consideration that gender-based factors influence women and men differently.
