Gender statistics give an accurate picture of the lives of women and men and provide the basis for policies and initiatives designed to redress inequalities. In recent years, the importance of these statistics has been widely recognized by development practitioners at international, regional and national levels. This handbook aims to provide data producers and users across Africa with a common understanding of gender statistics and how to produce them. It outlines issues, challenges and solutions aimed at helping statisticians integrate gender concerns in all phases of the statistical production process, from collection to dissemination. It is also a useful reference for users of gender statistics to improve their understanding of how data are produced.
