Summary:
The Gender, Institutions and Development Database (GID-DB) presents comparative data on gender equality. It has been compiled from secondary sources such as Gender Stats and the Human Development Report as well from in-depth reviews of country case studies. The data are divided into six categories: (i) general country information, (ii) social institutions, (iii) access to resources, (iv) political empowerment, (v) economic status of women, and (vi) composite indicators of gender equality.
