Indicators of gender equality

Task Force on Indicators of

Gender Equality

Cristina Freguja

background
Background
  • The need to monitor progress towards internationally agreed gender-related policy goals has led to the proliferation of indicators
  • The 2010 UNECE work session on gender statistics suggested to review the indicators with a strong gender dimension and to identify the key indicators that UNECE countries would be able to produce.
  • Such a review would assess the indicators’ suitability for describing major gender inequalities, for monitoring gender-relevant policies, their regular availability and comparability across countries.
objective
Objective

The UNECE Task Force on Indicators of Gender Equality aims to improve the monitoring of gender equality in the UNECE region

  • (a) by consolidating and systematizing the existing indicators, including developing a framework for grouping indicators by domain and a hierarchy of indicators
  • (b) by proposing ways for sustainable data collection on selected indicators and
  • (c) by proposing measurement approaches where internationally consistent measures are lacking.
framework
Framework
  • Gender indicators have the function of pointing out gender-related changes in society over time, and therefore to measure whether or to what extent gender equality is being achieved.
  • The United Nations Advisory Group on Gender Statistics Database and Indicators is working towards establishing a minimum set of indicators for international compilation worldwide, to provide a basis for monitoring gender issues on the global level.
  • The UNECE Task Force is considering this indicator set in defining the indicators for the UNECE region.
1 selection criteria
1. Selection criteria

The indicator…..

  • ….. clearly addresses a relevant policy issue related to gender equality and/or women’s empowerment;
  • ..… is relevant to the UNECE region;
  • .…. is conceptually clear, easy to interpret, and has an agreed international definition;
  • .…. is sensitive to changes; changes in the value of the indicator have a clear and unambiguous meaning;
  • .…. is feasible, robust and reliable;
  • ….. is comparable over time and enables international comparison
2 selection criteria
2. Selection criteria
  • The indicators aim at covering all key dimensions of gender equality.
  • The set should be limited to a fairly small number of indicators, be clear , well balanced between the different dimensions, based on measures, both objective and subjective
  • The headline indicators cover the most essential aspects and can be considered as the key indicators.
  • The supporting indicators provide further information on more specific aspects of gender equality. They are valuable to achieve a deeper comprehension of the phenomenon.
1 domains
1. Domains
  • The Beijing Platform of Action is taken as a starting point for identifying the domains of gender equality
  • (a) Woman and poverty;
  • (b) Education and training of women;
  • (c) Women and health;
  • (d) Violenceagainst women;
  • (f) Women and the economy (including the labour market and work-and-family issues);
  • (g) Women in power and decision making (in society; in the household).
2 domains
2. Domains
  • The Task Force will also pay attention on the domains for which less info is available, focusing on the needs to fill the data gaps.
  • (a) Institutional mechanism for the advancement of women (area H of the Beijing Platform for Action);
  • (b) Human rights of women (I);
  • (c) Women and the media (J);
  • (d) Women and the environment (K);
  • (e) The girl child (L).
  • Area E of the Beijing Platform for Action, “Women and armed conflict” is less relevant for the UNECE region and will not be considered in this framework.
