The UNDP and World Bank held a consultation meeting from 13 to 15 December 2017 in Washington DC on developing an index on LGBTI inclusion.
Building on two consultations organised in 2015, the work of two academic consultants and input from civil society, the meeting assessed a shortlist of indicators for five priority areas: political & civic participation; education; health; personal security and violence; and economic well-being. The proposed indicators assess the existence and implementation of laws, and measure outcomes for LGBTI inclusion. However, further discussions are needed to offer guidelines and support to member states and other data providers on collecting the data necessary for the indicators. These include, for example developing new standardised questions for population surveys. FRA can consider these data needs in the context of its next LGBTI survey.
