International comparisons

Globalisation is making the elaboration of internationally comparable indicators increasingly important. Gender equality indicators shed light on various aspects of the position of women in our society and make it possible to compare the gender equality situation in Switzerland with that of other countries.

A table , two publications and some maps in the Stat@las present a selection of gender equality indicators in international comparison. The data are drawn either from the Eurostat database or from the Gender Statistics Database made available by the statistical division of the United Nation's Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). Both databases are accessible online.
