The State of Gender Data is an evolving Data2X publication and digital experience designed to highlight global progress and spur action on gender data. Data2X will update the initiative annually, providing insight into a new dimension of gender data. For our initial launch, we focus on examining funding trends and highlighting promising solutions and key commitments.
The dimensions below are foundational to measuring gender data progress, with funding trends revealing how far the global community has fallen short of the investments needed to fill known gender data gaps. The solutions section demonstrates that despite funding challenges, powerful solutions exist for closing gender data gaps. And finally, through commitments (the most promising of the three dimensions), we provide a window into political will and demand for gender data—both of which are necessary for increasing policy use of gender data.
