Equality Insights Rapid: Tool Development Report
Equality Insights Rapid is a survey and measurement tool to provide an improved evidence base for implementing COVID-19 recovery that advances gender equality. The tool has been developed for use in the COVID-19 context by providing a shorter survey that can be administered by phone, avoiding face-to-face data collection.
Equality Insights Rapid is a ‘red-flagging tool’ that identifies moderate to severe deprivation, to strengthen the evidence available to support a more inclusive response and recovery, and is an individual-level, gender-sensitive measure of multidimensional poverty.
This document provides an overview of process undertaken to develop Equality Insights Rapid, a description of the key considerations that informed the item reduction process, and the survey items that will ultimately be included in the Equality Insights Rapid survey tool.
