New equality data subgroup to be facilitated by FRA

External event
On 25 January, the Agency will take part in the first informal meeting of a subgroup on improving the availability and collection of equality data.

The subgroup was set up under the EU’s High Level Group on Non-Discrimination, Equality and Diversity. This meeting will serve to agree the draft terms of reference of the subgroup, as well as to develop a draft plan of activities to support the drafting of non-binding guidelines on equality data collection. The guidelines will be submitted to the High Level Group for adoption in February 2018. The European Commission invited FRA to facilitate the work of the subgroup, in line with the agency’s mandate to develop methods and standards to improve the comparability, objectivity and reliability of data at European level.
