Gender analysis is a methodology for gathering and processing information on the occurrence and causes of gender inequality. This includes analysing differences in women’s and men’s social statuses, needs, participation rates, access to resources, empowerment, etc. using sex disaggregated statistics and surveys.
The purpose of gender analysis is to highlight the impact of gender relations and gender roles prevailing in society on the socioeconomic situations of men and women. It should be kept in mind that neither women nor men form two (homogeneous) groups of identical women or identical men, but other grounds for grouping – age, ethnicity, political and other beliefs, etc. – also have an impact in these groups.
