The Seminar on the UN Methodological Guidelines on the Production of Statistics on Asset Ownership from a Gender Perspective (EDGE meeting)
01-11-2017 – 02-11-2017 Rome
This seminar will present the UN Methodological Guidelines on the Production of Statistics on Asset Ownership from a Gender Perspective, developed under the Evidence and Data for Gender Equality (EDGE) project. The guidelines provide national statistical agencies and policy makers with guidance on collecting, processing, analysing and disseminating individual-level household survey data on asset ownership. Lessons learned from the EDGE pilot countries which tested the methodology will also be shared. The meeting will also cover the methodology proposed to measure and monitor SDG indicator 5.a.1 (5.a.1 (a) Proportion of total agricultural population with ownership or secure rights over agricultural land, by sex; and (b) share of women among owners or rights-bearers of agricultural land, by type of tenure), in line with the EDGE methods.
Evidence and Data for Gender Equality - Project Midterm Review Technical Meeting
03-12-2014 – 05-12-2014 Kitakyushu-city
The Evidence and Data for Gender Equality (EDGE) Midterm Review Technical Meeting took place in Kitakyushu-city, Japan, 3-5 December 2014. The meeting was organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in collaboration with UN Women. The key objectives of the three-day meeting were to: (a) promote the integration of a gender perspective into national statistical systems with the aim of improving the availability and quality of gender statistics, including statistics on the “emerging issues” of asset ownership and entrepreneurship; (b) update participants on the progress made by the EDGE initiative to advance methodological development on measuring asset ownership and entrepreneurship from a gender perspective; (c) receive feedback from national statisticians on the feasibility of implementing the recommendation(s) of the EDGE Methodological Survey Experiment on Measuring Asset Ownership from a Gender Perspective (MEXA) with regards to whom in the household should be interviewed about the ownership, control and valuation of assets at the individual level; (d) receive feedback from national statisticians and partner agencies on the applicability and feasibility of the methodology proposed under the EDGE project to measure entrepreneurship from a gender perspective; and (e) ensure that country implementation plans are in place for piloting data collection on asset ownership and control under the EDGE initiative during 2015.
