The UNECE Work Session on Gender Statistics brings together experts from across Europe and the world to move forward global efforts to close the gender data gap.

IDM Researcher, Dr Kylie Fisk is attending the Work Session in 2019. She will discuss her paper, co-authored by Carol McInerney: Measuring gender inequality within the household using the Individual Deprivation Measure in Fiji.

The paper explores the limitations of household-level surveys, and illustrates the power of data collected at the individual-level through sharing analysis from an IDM study in Fiji in 2015. By interviewing all adult household members, the IDM enables insights into variation and inequality within households, and a new perspective on gender inequality.

Join Dr Fisk’s session on Thursday, 16 May at the Economic Empowerment and Intra Household Power session from 13:30 – 15:40.
