U.S. Agency for International Development FY 2016 Report to Congress on Data Disaggregation

FY 2016 House Report 114­154 accompanying HR 2772: The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 90 days after enactment of this Act, on ef orts to disaggregate the impact of United States assistance on populations of strategic concern such as age, sex, and geographic area.

USAID ensures that guidance is in place for disaggregation of performance data on populations of strategic concern, based on demographics such as age, sex, and geographic area, as necessary and relevant. USAID missions are encouraged to disaggregate by age, geographic area, or other relevant attribute when it is relevant and needed for informing decisions about program performance.

There is specific guidance regarding sex-­disaggregated data, detailed below. The need to document any other types of disaggregation that are relevant are referenced in ADS Each performance indicator must be documented with a reference sheet that describes, among other attributes, whether and how the data must be disaggregated (by sex, age, or other category). USAID guidance on performance management plans also encourages Missions to consider and analyze any important types of disaggregation for an indicator (e.g., by sex, geography, income level, or other factor), especially if each sub­group has its own target.
