Gender Equality Index

Description

The Gender Equality Index assesses the impact of gender equality policies in the European Union and by Member States over time. It is built around six core domains - work, money, knowledge, time, power and health – and two satellite domains: violence against women and intersecting inequalities and it is based on EU policy priorities.

The update of the Index in 2015, enables a comparison not only across Member States, but also over time by providing scores for 2005, 2010 and 2012. It also provides — for the first time — results for Croatia, the newest EU Member State. Furthermore, the report takes an important step in measuring violence against women. By drawing on data collected by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) it explores the possibilities for computing a measure for violence against women; an area left blank due to a lack of data in the first volume.
