Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI)

29.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

The Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) is a research and analysis tool that was introduced by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) Development Centre in 2007. It calculates the level of gender discrimination present in the social institutions of over 160 countries. 

The SIGI is mainly used by researchers and policy makers, but its simple construction also makes it an interesting tool for the general public interested in women’s social and economic development.
