The Inter-secretariat Working Group on Household Surveys (ISWGHS) is created to foster improvement in the scope and quality of social and economic statistics as delivered through national, regional and international household survey programmes, including through increased coordination and cooperation across at all levels.

This dashboard is part of ISWGH’s Taskforce on COVID-19 household surveys. The overall objectives of the Task Force are to
  1. Support the coordination of the COVID-19 impact surveys in countries
  2. Provide guidance to countries both on maintaining the continuity of regular survey programmes and various methodological aspects of COVID-19 related surveys
  3. Establish a collective vision on the implications of COVID-19 for reshaping the national household survey programmes.
The Intersecretariat Working Group on Household Surveys (ISWGHS) Dashboard on COVID-19 Impact Surveys allows users to explore information on all household surveys on the impact of COVID-19 supported by ISWGHS members.

SDGs X Covid-19 – Gender Equality

COVID-19 threatens to undo many of the gains on gender equality over the past 25 years. In 2021, it is expected there will be 118 women in poverty for every 100 poor men globally, and this could rise by 2030. With bold policies to boost women’s economic empowerment, we can reduce poverty and advance progress across the SDGs. Investments in care services, education and skills are critical for economies of the future.
