Inequality assessments: Webinar 2 on Using Secondary Sources to assess inequalities

Event Details

A well-functioning CRVS system helps to ensure that every person has a legal identity, facilitating access to the benefits and protections of the State. Despite national and universal efforts to “get every one in the picture”, disparities in coverage of hard-to-reach and marginalized populations remain. Therefore, the Regional Action Framework on CRVS goes beyond the measurement of civil registration completeness at the national level and includes inequality assessment as part of the essential tools for achieving universal and well-functioning civil registration systems.

To answer countries' request for guidance on how to achieve it, ESCAP is organizing in collaboration with international and national organizations a series of webinars and Expert Group Meetings (EGM) with the overarching theme, “Inequalities in CRVS: Let’s really get every one in the picture!”.

This second webinar will focus on using secondary sources to assess inequality in civil registration with speakers sharing their knowledge and experiences of using various data sources for assessing inequalities in civil registration. It will explore questions such as:

  1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different data sources for assessing inequality in civil registration?
  2. What are the criteria for determining which data sources are the most appropriate, when are they appropriate to be used, which assumptions are made and do those assumptions hold?
  3. How may these data sources be improved to be a better resource for assessing inequality?


It will be followed by an EGM to reflect on the discussions of the webinar.

The webinar will be held on 8 February 2021, 12:00-13:30h (Bangkok time, GMT+7; verify your time here).
