What Are Cross-Domain Solutions?

Cross-domain solutions are solutions that may be relevant to more than one sector. A survey on political participation may, for example, collect data on women’s health and education. The solutions in this section are cross-sectoral methods of data collection that are not sector-specific. They can be applied in many sectors to complement or replace other methods of data collection.

Why Gender Diverse Enumerators Are Critical

For gender-sensitive modules in surveys, it is important to recruit and train women as enumerators in order to establish trust with the women responding within a household. This allows for more accurate data collection, as it may facilitate more transparent explanation of women’s experiences with violence, agency, and empowerment.
