Integrating a gender perspective into data collection goes beyond recording the sex of the respondent (or household member, reference person or head of the household, for that matter). It entails a review of the data collection process in all its stages – the selection of topics to be covered by the survey or census, questionnaire or form design, sample design, selection and training of interviewers and supervisors, data collection in the field, data coding and data editing – and paying attention to all factors that could potentially lead to a gender bias in the data.
