Malawi National Gender Statistics Assessment
The study focused on identifying data and capacity gaps in Malawi’s national statistical system (NSS) and identifying how these gaps can be bridged to increase production, uptake, and use, as well as improve the management of quality gender statistics in the country. The study identifies a number of challenges including inadequate normative frameworks and infrastructure to support statistical production, large time gaps between household surveys and censuses, limited dissemination and use of gender data and statistics across the NSS, and weak administrative data quality and systems.
