Commitment Title

Production and analysis of data with a gender perspective.

Problem

One of the contributions of open data is to reduce information gaps and barriers to data consumption and reuse. The accessibility of data encourages greater use by the population, generating more effective and comprehensive policies that have the exchange of citizenship, also generating greater trust in governments.

In this sense, there is a great lack of data on the inequalities of today’s society, especially those that affect the lives of women and people from the LGBTIQ+ community, or the available data find it difficult to be analyzed, systematized and shared. Undoubtedly, the limited availability or difficulties in the analysis of data with a gender perspective also shows how patriarchy is embedded in the production of information.

In Rosario, the Secretariat for Gender and Human Rights was created at the beginning of this municipal administration and is faced with the need to construct and collect this data to improve the quality and capacity of its interventions.

Status quo

The Secretariat for Gender and Human Rights is currently carrying out a series of gender policies in the areas of health, comprehensive care, training and work, with a view to guaranteeing women’s rights and disarming stereotypes.

These policies generate data that must be ordered, analyzed and made available to all municipal areas for a better transversal approach to gender policies and also requires an increase in the quantity and quality of them. However, this task often exceeds the operational capacity of the Secretariat and requires cross-cutting approaches throughout the municipality.

It is therefore essential to generate comprehensive processes of production and analysis of data with a gender perspective as an essential link to think of equality strategies and allows us to look for causes and correlations to understand the main problems in order to generate evidence-based concrete tools.

Action

The commitment will address the problem from three angles, the training of municipal agents and citizens on information with a gender perspective, the characterization of current realities in terms of availability and lack of data on the subject including the design of policies to improve the current situation, and finally the development of guidelines with principles and practices for the opening of gender data, standardization and opening protocols, the transparency framework effect on public policies, OGP framework and open data with a gender perspective: how to build them, areas to prioritize, etc.

The commitment will also count as expected results, the design of tools to design and implement campaigns that make it possible to raise awareness about the importance and the sense of rigour in the collection of data, in their analysis and communications, and to counter biased and stereotyped conceptions when designing public policies.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem described above?

The commitment will contribute to the solution of the public problem by generating knowledge in state agents about information with a gender perspective, understanding that data is always constructed from theoretical positions and in the face of the lack of information, methodologies may include biases in the analysis or approach of problems in a limited or even erroneous way.

It will also allow the identification of possible areas of analysis that will allow the generation of diagnoses of different problems associated with gender inequality and make the issue visible. In addition, it is planned to trace missing data to be incorporated into the Rosario Data Portal in the middle term.

Finally, the generation of guidelines with principles and practices for the opening of data on gender, standardization and opening protocols, and tools to design and implement campaigns will increase the number of cross-cutting public policies, thus increasing the capacity of the entire municipality.

What long-term goal as identified in your Open Government Strategy does this commitment relate to?

This commitment contributes to our Strategic Vision of Open Government since it is framed in the decision of the current municipal management to accelerate the processes of digital transformation and deepen the construction of public policies based on data and evidence. Specifically, it provides in:

  1. It addresses the proper management and opening of data, implying its publication and its internal and by citizen use.
  2. Improves both active and passive transparency by improving access to data.
  3. Implement technological solutions and improve the capacities of state agents and citizens.
  4. To generate greater transparency, participation, collaboration and agility in the government-citizenship interrelations through the mechanisms of proximity of the government.
