SIGI
The Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) was first launched by the OECD Development Centre in 2009 as a innovative measure of the underlying drivers of gender inequality for over 100 countries. Instead of measuring gender gaps in outcomes such as employment and education, the SIGI instead captures discriminatory social institutions, such as early marriage, discriminatory inheritance practices, violence against women, son preference, restricted access to public space and restricted access to land and credit. The 2012 SIGI is made up of 14 unique variables, grouped into 5 sub-indices: Discriminatory Family Code, Restricted Physical Integrity, Son Bias, Restricted Resources and Entitlements and Restricted Civil Liberties. Since the SIGI was launched in 2009, countries have introduced new laws, there have been changes in practices and data sources have improved. The 2012 SIGI represents an updated methodological and conceptual framework and improved data sources for over 100 countries.BD014-

TheStatistical Database System (SDBS) is the Asian Development Bank’s central statistical database that stores macro-economic and social data of its developing member countries (DMCs).

SDBS has annual data, from 1975 onward, on national accounts, prices, government finance, trade, balance of payments, money and banking, external debt, population, labor force, and social indicators. Other member countries’ data on selected economic indicators as well as quarterly and monthly data of some indicators are also available. SDBS is updated continuously and new series are added based on emerging demands. This Internet version of SDBS, however, only contains data that are freely accessible by the public, from 1988 to 2012… A download module has been incorporated so that updated country and regional tables from the Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific, ADB’s flagship statistical publication, can now be downloaded from the Bank’s website.

Using both qualitative and quantitative means of data collection and analysis, the framework for measuring gender inequality under the AGDI is broadly classified into three “blocks” which reflect the totality of human development. They are the social block (capabilities), comprised of education and health issues; the economic block (opportunities) assessing access to productive resources; and the political block (agency) dealing with women’s representation in decision-making in public and civil society arenas.

UNHCR Statistical Online Population Database
The database currently contains data about UNHCR’s populations of concern from the year 2000 up to 2012 and you can use it to investigate different aspects of these populations: their general composition by location of residence or origin, their status (refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons, etc.), their evolution over time, and so on.
Overview page each row of data presents the information about UNHCR’s populations of concern for a given year and country of residence and/or origin. Figures for the different types of population are presented across the page.
Time Series page presents the same data as the Overview page, but arranges the figures as a yearly time series across the page.
Demographics page presents information about persons of concern broken down by sex and age, as well as by location within the country of residence (where such information is available). Note that data broken down in this way is not always available, so it may not be possible to reconcile the figures on this page with those on the Overview and Time Series pages.
Asylum Seekers page presents information about asylum applications in a given year and the progress of asylum seekers through the refugee status determination process.
Quick Queries page contains a selection of links to data that are frequently requested, bypassing the need to enter specific query criteria. Note that these queries will open in a new page in your browser.
