The summary of the Generations and Gender Survey represents the most important conclusions of the GGS, the first and most comprehensive longitudinal demographic study monitoring demographic changes taking place in the Republic of Moldova. This is a global survey, carried out so far in over 24 countries, and is part of an international programme coordinated by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI).
In the Republic of Moldova, the GGS was carried out at the request of the Government of the Republic of Moldova as part of the global Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) and is implemented by the United Nations Population Fund in partnership with the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, the National Bureau of Statistics and the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute. The study was made possible thanks to the financial support provided by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, the India-UN Development Partnership Fund and UNFPA Moldova.
The survey participants were more than 10,000 people aged 15-79 from 153 localities of the Republic of Moldova, excluding the region on the left bank of the Nistru River. Being an international longitudinal survey, it is to be conducted in three waves, with survey participants being visited repeatedly over 3 years to understand the demographic changes that occur over time.
