European Institute for Gender Equality Index 2019 Reports

11.05.2020 / Created by (EMWF)

The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) offers new in depth publications and reports for the 2019 analysing the Gender Equality Index in every EU Member States.

Each year the European Institute for Gender Equality scores EU Member States and the EU as a whole to see how far they are from reaching gender equality. The Index uses a scale of 1 to 100, where 1 is for total inequality and 100 is for total equality. The scores are based on the gaps between women and men and levels of achievement in six core domains: work, money, knowledge, time, power and health. Two additional domains are integrated into the Index but do not have an impact on the final score. The domain of intersecting inequalities highlights how gender inequalities manifest in combination with age, dis/ability, country of birth, education and family type. The domain of violence against women measures and analyses women’s experiences of violence.

In addition to providing a snapshot into the Index scores, the Gender Equality Index 2019 includes a thematic focus on work-life balance.

This new focus includes indicators in six specific areas of concern:

  • parental leave policies;
  • caring for children and childcare services;
  • informal care for older persons and persons with disabilities and long-term care services;
  • transport and infrastructure;
  • flexible working arrangements;
  • lifelong learning.
