Authors/editor(s): Central statistics agency of Ethiopia and UN Women

The assessment focuses on the mainstreaming of gender in the National Statistical System (NSS) and will contribute towards improving the statistical laws and practices that affect the efficient functioning of the NSS and the generation of gender statistics. It provides insights into the level of gender mainstreaming in the NSS and various regular surveys and censuses, and identifies the gaps in, and ways to improve, gender statistics generation and utilization in the NSS of Ethiopia. To this end, the assessment uses a desk review, stakeholder mapping, key informant interviews, observations and the outcomes of consultative workshops.
