Data Based Projects

Data based projects are initiatives that rely on the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data to achieve specific objectives or solve problems. These projects involve the gathering and display of numbers, which may represent quantitative or qualitative data, to inform decision-making, assess performance, or gain insights into a particular area of interest. In the context of gender equality, data based projects use data to to show differences between women and men or different groups by age, ethnicity or other areas. The aim of data based projects in the realm of gender equality is to inform people on the current state of gender equality in a given location and create a centralized platform to share accurate information on said topic. It can therefore contribute to promoting fairness, inclusivity, and social justice by using data-driven insights to guide interventions and policies that address gender-based disparities and support equitable outcomes.

Best Practice Examples:

Vienna Gender Equality Monitor

The Vienna Gender Equality Monitor uses available empirical data to make the state of equality between women and men in Vienna measurable and visible, while also tracking changes over time and thus encouraging fact-based policy and decision making.
