The present manual is targeted primarily at statisticians working in national statistical systems and can be used as resource material for training in gender statistics. The manual should help statisticians (a) to improve the coverage of gender issues in statistics, as well as the quality of statistics, on a wide range of topics; (b) to incorporate a gender perspective into the design of surveys and censuses, by taking into account gender issues and gender bias in measurement; and (c) to improve data analysis and data presentation and to deliver gender statistics in a format that is easy to use by policymakers and planners. The manual may also be useful for data users who wish to be able to interpret statistics correctly and to understand the problems involved in the production of gender statistics and therefore have a more efficient dialogue with data producers.
