CHAPTER 6. THE STATE OF SEX-DISAGGREGATED DATA
This chapter summarizes and assesses the ICT access, skills, and leadership indicators covered in this report against three criteria: conceptual clarity, established methodology, and regularity of data collection (based on the three tiers of the UN’s Minimum Set of Gender Indicators).
There is a severe lack of gender-disaggregated official statistics on ICT-access, skills and leadership. Most indicators are conceptually unclear, lack an agreed methodology, and are not regularly collected by most countries in any region or development category (less than 50% of countries, for most indicators).
