All countries have pledged to eliminate gender disparities in primary and secondary education by 2005. According to the new edition of the EFA Global Monitoring Report, 54 countries are at risk of not achieving this goal on present trends.

Gender statistics web site for Europe and North America – a website that aims to bring together both gender statistics and policies. The main focus is on the production, dissemination and use of gender related data. In addition to statistics, this site elaborates on some of the main gender issues relevant to the UNECE region, and provides examples of policies and other initiatives within that context. This website also links these gender issues to statistical indicators developed by the UNECE/UNDP gender statistics Task Force. The UNECE Gender Statistics Database which was released in May 2003 helps to monitor the situation of women and men in all UNECE member countries, and to evaluate the effectiveness of policies. The aims of the website and a short overview of the website contents are given in our mission.
This website is for everyone: from producers and users of statistics, policy makers and planners, to NGOs and other gender equality advocates, the media and the general public.
