About the Portal
This gender data portal is a one-stop shop for gender information, catering to a wide range of users and providing data from a variety of sources. Data at the country level are organized under six thematic headings, which are aligned to the themes identified by the Inter-agency and Expert Group on Gender Statistics. The portal includes gender datasets from the United Nations(UN) compiled by its Regional Commissions and Sectoral Agencies, as well as World Bank conducted or funded surveys and reports, such as the 2012 World Development Report (WDR) on Gender and Development. The data available should enable assessment of Bank funding of gender-informed activities , as well as monitoring of country progress on key development agendas such as the Millennium Development Goals , IDA 16 and the Bank’s Corporate Scorecard. This portal is a work in progress -- the database will be continuously updated as new information becomes available, and as new gender priorities are identified.
