Data collection and recording – Welsh Government assessment

Progress assessment

No progress

There have been no legal or policy changes to improve human rights protections in relation to this issue, and very limited evidence of progress in the enjoyment of these rights

The Welsh Government publishes and analyses some data by protected characteristic, although significant data gaps remain. Overall data gaps and limited disaggregated data make it difficult to assess the impact of Welsh Government policies, or how policies have affected particular groups. However, the Welsh Government has taken some steps to begin to address data gaps identified by UN treaty bodies. Commitments to introduce an equality data unit and a race disparity unit are encouraging, and work to monitor and assess the implementation of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 should continue to improve disaggregated data across a range of issues.
