There are major gaps in human development achievements between women and men.

The Gender Development Index measures gender gaps in human development achievements by accounting for disparities between women and men in three basic dimensions of human developmentā€”health, knowledge, and living standards.

The GDI is calculated for 164 countries and helps highlight the gender gap in human development achievements and inform policy design.
