For A Project On Gender Data

Strategies
Overview
This project is part of a new partnership between the World Bank, Data2X, the International Labor Organization, and the Food and Agricultural Organization. The partnership supports the implementation of the new international statistical standards for measuring men’s and women’s employment and work, which were adopted by the 19th International Conference of Labor Statisticians. In particular, the project seeks to develop ways to adapt household surveys to measure unpaid work, and then to apply those new methods in at least two countries. Improving measurement of unpaid work will advance a comprehensive understanding of women's economic contributions, particularly where subsistence agriculture is prevalent.
