Global Gender Gap Index

The Global Gender Gap Index benchmarks national gender gaps on economic, political, education and health criteria, and provides country rankings that allow for effective comparisons across regions and income groups.

The Global Gender Gap Index examines the gap between men and women in four fundamental categories
(subindexes): Economic Participation and Opportunity, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival and
Political Empowerment.
