World Development Report 2021 - Figure B2.3.1, Proportion of COVID-19 cases reported with sex-disaggregated data by 190 countries (March-November, 2020)

Primary tabs

Gaps in sex-disaggregated data related to the COVID-19 pandemic are pervasive, causing knowledge of the gender impacts of the pandemic to be incomplete.
In March 2020, only 61 percent of reported COVID-19 cases were disaggregated by sex, and these data were provided by 26 countries. By November 2020, reporting had grown to 80 countries, but the proportion still stood at 60 percent. The reporting was irregular throughout 2020.
