In May 2021, the Updated Philippine Core Gender and Development (GAD) Indicators were approved and adopted by the PSA Board through PSA Board Resolution No. 08, Series of 2021. The Core GAD indicators framework serves as the basis in the generation and analysis of gender and development indicators in the country. The updating of the Philippine Core GAD indicators took into consideration the various GAD indicators systems such as the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) Minimum Core Set of Gender Indicators, UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) Regional Core Set of Gender Indicators and Ministerial Declaration, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Women and Economy Dashboard, and the Gender Equality and Women Empowerment (GEWE) Indicators. The main considerations for the indicators to be included in the updated list of Philippine Core GAD are: (1) regular availability of data or there are current and concrete efforts being done to make them available; and (2) relevance of the indicators, either as part of the original Core GAD Indicators Framework approved in 2001, or is included in at least four of the gender indicator systems mentioned above. Furthermore, the PSA shall regularly monitor the updated list of Core GAD indicators through the annual updating of the Factsheet on Women and Men, and the Statistical Handbook on Women and Men in the Philippines. Moreover, all concerned government agencies are enjoined to provide the necessary data support to monitor these indicators.

Enhancement of the Gender Webpage in the PSA
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) wishes to report the enhancement of its gender webpage in the PSA website. Its scope and content were expanded, and a new design was applied. The webpage now includes the Updated Philippine Core Gender and Development Indicators and the newly designed Annual Fact Sheet on Women and Men in pdf and excel forms, segregated by areas of concern. New features were also integrated in the webpage such as the compilation of gender-related publications, special studies, events and PSA Board Resolutions. In addition, the gender webpages of the PSA Regional Offices, which present regional estimates, indicators and infographics on gender, were also linked to the webpage. Furthermore, related links on important local and international websites were added for easy reference on gender statistics metadata, definition and indicator systems.

The Gender Webpage, which can be accessed through the link http://gmggc.com/gender-stat, includes compilation of gender data from the latest surveys, statistical reports, publications and infographic materials from designated official statistics and administrative data sources. It hopes to provide relevant and user-friendly information on gender issues that are deemed important to planners, researchers, and other users for evidence-based gender and development advocacy, planning, programming, and policy setting.
