Open Source Data-Sets
There remain gaps in high quality, recent statistics disaggregated by sex, age, and other socio-economic factors. However, there exist hundreds of open-source data sets, including visualization and mapping resources, that can be put to use. Equilo has curated a library of open-source data to inform social and gender analysis.
Gender Analysis Frameworks
A sound social and gender analysis framework formulates the basis of a sound analysis. Many exist with varying degrees of strengths and weaknesses and flexibility to apply across sectors and investment or relief contexts. Equilo has drawn upon the strengths of various analytic frameworks to create a comprehensive gender analysis and social inclusion framework that drives its algorithms and ensures compliance with any organization.
While both women and men are affected by changes to daily life caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, traditional divisions of labor dictate that women are often the ones in charge of household and care duties, meaning that women’s availability and ability to work is disproportionately affected.
