Sex-Disaggregated Data on Asset Ownership

Sex-disaggregated data highlights the gendered experience of poverty, which is not captured using household-level data. Despite strong evidence linking women’s asset ownership to development goals, sex-disaggregated data—critical for monitoring progress on SDG targets—remains scarce. The Evidence and Data for Gender Equality (EDGE) project is working to address this data gap. ADB supported household surveys measuring assets and entrepreneurship from a gender perspective in Georgia, Mongolia, and the Philippines.
