This guidebook clarifies gender statistics amidst other statistics as well as explains the importance and uses of sex-disaggregated data in the various aspects of planning and program development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. It guides researchers, planners and program implementers to a gender indicator system that will be useful to gender-responsive development planning.
This guidebook is aimed not only to contribute to the development and strengthening of gender-responsive databases at the local level but also to provide a guide for producing gender statistics necessary in formulating, implementing and monitoring a gender-responsive plan. It is designed mainly to benefit the LGUs, specifically the municipal and provincial planning development offices. It should also be useful for members of Regional Statistical Coordination Committees, researchers in the field of GAD, statisticians and academicians.
