GENDER STATISTICS
 


 

Rather than "statistics on women," gender statistics are statistics on both women and men intended for the equitable advancement of each vis--vis the other. The need for gender statistics was realized under the notion that the advancement of women in society cannot occur in isolation from that of men.
 


"Let us tell the world and let us tell it with pride: the empowerment of women is the empowerment of all humanity"

Boutros Boutros-Ghali, UN Secretary-General
Fourth World Conference on Women, Beijing, 1995
 


Data on why gender statistics are needed, what gender statistics are, whom they are for, and how they are produced can be found in creating gender statistics.

In the Arab countries there is a dearth of gender statistics. The state of Arab statistical systems as well as required gender indicators are highlighted in developing statistical capabilities.
