Gender Data Bank
Any public policy on women, gender and development issues is formed with the help of information, expertise and guidance from a number of public bodies. What is most important in this however is the need for the easy accessibility of gender related data with “one window approach”.
The idea of having a Gender Data Bank at GRC was based on this presumption. The aim is not to create new data but collect existing data and provide updated and reliable quantitative information on the important areas of concern for women. We have tried to also include data on the subjective position of women within social groups, residence, age, etc. Though the focus is on Gujarat scenario, comparison with other states and national rankings have also been included to get the complete idea on where the state stands as far as status of women is concerned.
This booklet would provide gender segregated data for analysis to Government Officers, Policy Developers, Analysts, NGOs, and other agencies working on gender issues.
