At the end of March, PARIS21 launched a series of gender statistics activities in the Dominican Republic in collaboration with Oficina Nacional de Estadística (ONE). The activities included consultations with the ONE as well as important producers and users of gender statistics including the Ministry of Women and the Ministry of Education.

PARIS21 aimed at obtaining information about the production, coordination and use of gender statistics in the Dominican Republic through the use of questionnaires, covering different areas of statistical capacity and statistics use. The information obtained from these questionnaires, as well as the assessment of data gaps (planned for the summer 2019), will form the basis of an assessment of national gender statistics. This assessment will constitute a key input for the formulation of gender statistics strategy integrated into the country’s National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS), recognising the crosscutting and transversal character of gender statistics. The NSDS preparation provides an excellent entry point to mainstream gender in the new plan. It also provides an opportunity to promote cooperation and establish a current snapshot of the state of gender statistics in the country from the perspective of producers and users.
