Evaluating Gender Statistics in Iraq

January 2009

This study is the result of bilateral cooperation between the Central Organization for Statistics and Information Technology (COSIT) at the Ministry of Planning and Development Cooperation in Iraq, and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), in the area of developing the analysis of gender statistics in Iraq.

Gender statistics is an essential means to measure the status of women and evaluate their role in society, the economy, and the state, while determining the extent of their exploitation of the development process, and the extent of societal bias against them.

We hope that the study contributes to providing an analytical and calibration tool of gender statistics in Iraq, especially that it objectively portrayed the weaknesses and shortcomings of this statistical process.
