Frequently Asked Questions
Where does Equilo’s data come from?
Equilo aggregates data from thousands of internationally validated and open-source databases and reports to populate our gender analysis tools. Our team of global experts has rigorously selected valid data sources and transformed both quantitative and qualified data into a uniform structured database that we keep refreshed on an ongoing basis. Equilo’s team of researchers and gender specialists ensure our high quality automated tools do this work for you, saving you time and money scouring multiple sources and providing the data you need all in one place.
How often is Equilo’s data updated?
Equilo's team of researchers and data scientists continually monitor our data sources and immediately import new data into our master database in addition to continuously reviewing possible new data sources. Where we are able to use APIs to automatically update our quantitative data we do so. Users will always have the latest and freshest data and analysis available.
How does Equilo ensure that the data it provides is reliable and high-quality?
To ensure the reliability of the data we provide, Equilo first chooses data from internationally validated and standardized sources, then from reputable and reliable institutions and research organizations with credible sampling and research methodology, and, if necessary, data from national statistical offices. We provide users with a confidence score to signal a lower score when data for a specific country and indicator is not from an internationally validated and standardized source. Our global team of advisors, experts, and researchers utilize standardized validation and quality criteria to determine what makes its way into our database.
