Gender Statistics Module of the National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) Guidelines

#Strategy and planning
Building a gender-responsive statistical system requires a recognition that statistics are a “gendered” area. National statistical systems (NSSs) and other non-state data producers need to adequately represent the situations, conditions and concerns of the whole population - in all its diversity - to appropriately address the most important policy issues of modern societies and economies. An awareness that women, men and diverse sub-populations can have different life experiences and react differently to policies and programmes provides the basis for inclusive governance.
