This database serves as a comprehensive knowledge center for gender statistics and information on various aspects of (in)equality between women and men at the Member State and European Union levels.
The main purpose of this database is:
- “To build a broad overview of statistics on gender, highlighting differences and inequalities between both sexes;
- To support the measurement of whether, or to what extent, gender equality is de facto being achieved;
- To act as a reliable resource in formulation and monitoring of policies that are beneficial for both women and men and will facilitate making appropriate decisions towards the advancement of gender equality.”
