UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
To support Member States in implementing the 2030 Agenda, UN Women’s global gender data programme, “Making Every Woman and Girl Count” (Women Count), is affecting a radical shift in the availability, accessibility and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Programme is implementing a multi-year and multi-country programme of work, supported by global and regional activities linking normative and technical work on gender statistics at the global level to the regional and national levels through three interlinked areas of work:
Located in the Research and Data Section of UN Women (R&D), the Statistics Analyst works under the supervision of the Statistics Specialist/Inter-Regional Advisor on Gender Statistics of the Women Count programme to provide technical support to the latter in the implementation of statistical activities and delivery of statistical outputs related to the Counted and Visible: Toolkit to Better Utilize Existing Data from Household Surveys to Generate Disaggregated Gender Statistics (Counted and Visible Toolkit project) and the conduct of Rapid Gender Assessments (RGAs) on the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19. The tools and documented learnings from the RGAs will likewise be included to enrich the Counted and Visible Toolkit. More generally, s/he will assist in the delivery of activities and outputs of other Women Count global projects.
The Counted and Visible Toolkit is a collection of good practices as well as learnings of several country studies, each focusing on a particular aspect of the process of generating disaggregated gender statistics using existing data from household surveys. The Counted and Visible Toolkit provides key actors in NSSs not only guidance on the statistical computational exercises necessary but also on institutional arrangements and mechanisms, communications, and stakeholders’ collaboration and coordination. The Counted and Visible Toolkit is meant to expand the support of the Women Count programme to countries beyond the 10 pilot countries included in the project by providing a compilation of tools strengthening statistical capacities of key actors in NSSs to produce more and better disaggregated gender statistics. The Executive Summary of the Counted and Visible Toolkit serves as a background document of the Inter-Secretariat Working Group on Household Surveys (ISWGHS) to the 52nd Session of the UN Statistical Commission. The online/abridged version of the Counted and Visible Toolkit will be launched on the Women Count Data Hub on 3 March 2021 to ensure wide access of target users. The full report will be published in June 2021, which will include additional 10 country examples – aside from the 13 countries covered in the online version. Beyond June 2021, identification and compilation of similar resources from Women Count countries undertaking similar activities (e.g., RGAs) will be continuously undertaken to ensure that the online version as well as the publication is regarded as a living document. Communication and outreach efforts will be undertaken in two phases between February and November 2021, with the second half covering a more comprehensive approach after the launch of the full publication in June 2021.
To ensure a gender-responsive and evidence-based recovery, UN Women has been leading efforts to collect, analyse and disseminate timely data on the gendered impacts of COVID-19, and government responses. Since April 2020, UN Women conducted RGAs on the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 with national and regional partners in at least 51 countries across regions. Two global reports will be produced in 2021: 1) a technical report, which will provide a collection of good practices as well as learnings of several country RGAs covering the statistical and technical aspects of the survey as well as partnerships and collaboration, monitoring and use cases; and 2) a statistical brief on the global picture of the gendered impacts of COVID-19 featuring results from more than 50 countries covering all regions.
