Mobile Gender Gap Report 2020 Methodology
This document details the methodology behind The Mobile Gender Gap Report 2020. This report is part of an annual series analysing the gender gap in mobile ownership and mobile internet use in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This accompanying methodology report describes the analysis
and modelling we used and highlights the key areas of methodological change from previous years.
This document is designed as a supplement to the main report and includes:
- The parameters of the GSMA Intelligence Consumer Survey 2019, on which the findings of this study are based. The survey covered 15 LMICs in 2019, supplemented by 2017 and 2018 survey results from 13 additional countries. The 28 countries covered by the three waves of the GSMA Intelligence Consumer Survey collectively represent 75 per cent of the total adult population of all LMICs.
- Extrapolation models, which provide estimates of the gender gaps in mobile ownership, mobile internet use and smartphone ownership in LMICs not included in the GSMA Intelligence Consumer Survey.
- Analytical approaches used to investigate the results of survey questions on mobile use, and the
barriers preventing mobile ownership and mobile internet use.
