The Government of Ghana, through its Statistical Service with assistance from Statistics Denmark, is monitoring gender equality by strengthening routine data collection systems on several data quality improvement projects. Data collection enhancements incorporate mainstreaming gender in its administrative data collection forms, including on migration. The projects are developing a database aligned with Ghana's strategies from its National Gender Policy and the UN's SDGs.
