Philippine Evidence and Data for Gender Equality (EDGE) Report

Philippine Edge Report

The Evidence and Data for Gender Equality (EDGE) project was launched to promote availability of internationally comparable sex-disaggregated data on asset ownership and entrepreneurship. The project aims to contribute to enhancing national policies that would promote women’s empowerment and decision-making, sustainable livelihoods, and reduction of poverty and vulnerability, through evidence-based policy development using individual level data. The multi-year EDGE initiative is jointly executed by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in collaboration with the respective national statistical offices (NSOs) of participating countries, the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the World Bank. 

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), together with the NSOs of Georgia and Mongolia, participated in the ADB technical assistance project to support the global EDGE initiative. While gender-related data is already being collected by the Philippine Statistical System (PSS), individual-level data on asset ownership and entrepreneurship with a gender perspective remains a data gap.
