Objetivos

a) General objective

Provide a methodological and conceptual tool to guide the incorporation of the gender perspective
into the production of official statistics, mainly with respect to those priority issues.


b) Specific objectives 

  • Identify, review and systematize the work of the countries of the region (and other regions) as well as the most recent advances of United Nations agencies, funds and programmes, to integrate the gender perspective in the production of statistics related to education, labour, poverty, the environment, food security, decision-making, health, migration and forced displacement, violence against women, and any other issue that may be related to gender inequality, particularly emerging and non-traditional ones in gender statistics.
  • Provide a general conceptual framework on the gender perspective in the field of statistical production, including considerations of gender identity variables.
  • Define criteria to be considered, as well as recommendations to be followed in order to incorporate the gender perspective into each phase of the statistical production process.
  • Contribute with useful recommendations for establishing statistical standards that the countries of the region can adapt to their conditions, types of NSS, institutional environments, processes and outputs, for the production and presentation of information with a gender perspective.
