The article reviews current ways of collecting and using sex and age disaggregated data (SADD) within the humanitarian community. It shows that while the data exists in most societies, it remains under used in response and planning. The authors call for a more systematic data collection, analysis and incorporation into policies and humanitarian practices in order to better understand needs on the ground and deliver a more effective assistance.
