Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Latin America and the Caribbean. Technical Report
In 2018, Data2X and Open Data Watch conceived a study that would offer national statistical offices, international statistical systems, development partners, and others involved in measuring and monitoring the progress of the world’s women and girls a more complete understanding of where gaps in gender data exist, why such gaps occur, and what can be done to fill them. The resulting technical report, Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Africa (Data2X, Open Data Watch, 2019), provided insights into those questions and moved the development community one step closer to producing high-quality and policy-relevant gender indicators to inform better decisions. This study builds on the experience of the previous study but shifts the geographic focus to Latin America and the Caribbean.
