DEVELOPING STATISTICAL CAPABILITIES
 



National statistical capabilities in the Arab countries are in need of strengthening.
 

Critical gender indictors are absent from national statistical systems.
Data collected is irrelevant to the empowerment of women and inaccessible to potential users.

This dearth in gender statistics was underscored in the "Review and Assessment of Progress Achieved for the Advancement of Women to the Year 2005" discussed at the Arab Regional Preparatory Meeting for the Fourth World Conference on Women, held in Amman, 6-10 November 1994.

The Development of National Gender Statistics Programmes in the Arab Countries (GSP) has emerged to assist in the improvement of national statistical capabilities.
