Data collection and COVID-19: What’s gender got to do with it?
This blog examines how the COVID-19 pandemic unearths several important gender dimensions and implications before, during, and after data collection. The authors tackle considerations around training of data collectors, the choice of participants, modalities and methods for data collection, and service and support provisions for participants and collectors. Urging the reader to “re-examine, re-think, and reconstruct taken-for-granted data collection processes,” the authors highlight how researchers must continue to combat the embedded inequalities of the pandemic and critically investigate the gender implications of their research techniques.
