Measurement of the gender dimension in the access and use of digital technologies: A guide for public policy makers

The collection and analysis of data on the access and use of the internet segregated by gender is key to accurately measure both the magnitude and the evolution of the gender gap, and to design policy actions to correct this bias and avoid it in the future. This is even more relevant in the context of the pandemic caused by COVID-19, which has shown the cost of these inequalities, and which may result in a potential widening of gender gaps as a consequence of the resulting economic crisis. This data offers key information to incorporate, by the private sector, relevant aspects in its products and value propositions, for example, in terms of content. The publication seeks to support public policy makers in the region in the systematic collection of updated and detailed information, segregated by gender, on Internet access and use.
