Issues Partners Working with the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda

If data isn’t from all of us, data isn’t for all of us



Data2X, housed at the United Nations Foundation, is a collaborative technical and advocacy platform dedicated to improving the quality, availability, and use of gender data in order to make a practical difference in the lives of women and girls worldwide. Motivated by the belief that "there is no gender equality without data equality," Data2X works with United Nations agencies, governments, civil society, academics, and the private sector to close gender data gaps, promote expanded and unbiased gender data collection, and use gender data to improve policies, strategies, and decision-making in support of gender equality.

Data2X seeks to shift how gender data is understood, collected and used, through a combination of strategic policy advocacy and technical partnerships to promote filling data gaps in five development domains – health, education, economic opportunity, political participation, and human security. A gender data revolution is necessary to track progress towards, and ultimately achieve, the Sustainable Development Goals.
