Understanding the current status of gender data is critical for making better decisions.

This publication provides the methodology for Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Africa and Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Availability in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Bridging the Gap Africa study looked at gender data gaps for 15 countries in sub-Saharan Africa: Botswana, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

The Bridging the Gap LAC project looked at gender data gaps for five countries that are part of the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC): Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Paraguay.

This Methodology will be routinely updated as Open Data Watch and Data2X expands their research to other regions.
