Core List of Gender Indicators

Core list of gender indicators were developed by the Inter-agency and Expert Group on Gender Statistics in October 2011. This core list seeks to address key gender-related policy concerns as identified in the Beijing Platform for Action and other more recent international commitments. The core list of indicators is meant to provide a basis from which to promote the production and compilation of gender statistics by national statistical agencies. The list includes indicators capturing key dimensions of gender equality and women’s empowerment that are common across countries and regions and goes beyond MDG3 indicators.  IAEG-GS expects that regional and national entities will use this core list as a starting point and add indicators specific to regional and national contexts.
