The Gender Data

Most of the data needed to track progress against the Sustainable Development Goals to and evaluate whether policies have improved the lives of communities is produced by countries through national statistical systems. But capacity to produce high quality, gender-relevant data needs to be strengthened. To achieve the transformation we need for gender data, we must invest in the people who run data systems now and in the future.

To help build national statistical capacity, in partnership with the African Center for Statistics, the UN Economic Commission for Africa, and Open Data Watch, Data2X formed the Gender Data Network in 2019.

This network brings together gender data experts from national statistical systems in 15 countries to share innovative solutions to overcome common barriers for producing and using high quality gender data. The Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21) serves as secretariat of the Gender Data Network (GDN).
