6. Tool 4: Gender Digital Divide Illustrative Indicators

Tool 4 is a suggested list of digital-related indicators that USAID staff and partners can use throughout the program cycle and across sectors—not just in programs that specifically target women and girls. The proposed indicators focus on mobile and Internet platforms. They are based on existing and accepted research and on indicators already in use, with awareness of the ongoing debate within the gender digital divide ecosystem. All proposed indicators and relevant data sources are derived from publicly available materials and align with the broader WEEGE illustrative indicators.
