Looking for statistics on women and men? – Products News from Eurostat
Eurostat has a wide variety of statistics on women and men which will help anyone to better understand gender equality. To help you navigate the website, we have prepared a list of resources that you can click on and have direct access to without having to spend extra time looking for them.
First, you can start by visiting Eurostat’s dedicated equality section, which focuses on gender equality as well as age and disability equality. The dedicated section gives you direct access to the equality database, which has a section on gender equality and includes education, labor market, income and social inclusion, childcare children, health and the digital economy and society.
If you are looking for data with analysis, Eurostat has three Statistics Explained articles that focus exclusively on this topic: gender pay gap statistics, gender statistics (both updated yesterday) and SDG 5 – Gender Equality, which provides a quantitative assessment of EU progress towards this UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) in the EU context and also includes data on gender-based violence, employment and management positions.
Another resource that offers interesting gender analysis is “The Lives of Women and Men in Europe: Interactive Edition 2021”. This interactive publication covers many areas ranging from demographic information to education, work and career, Internet use and family life, such as childcare and household chores. To make things more challenging, this post also includes a quiz for an educational game.
The Labor Market Database (including the Labor Force Survey) also offers data with gender-disaggregated analysis, if you want to go deeper. The same applies to the EU Statistical Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) which covers poverty, social exclusion, housing, work, education and health. Further information is available in their respective sections dedicated to the labor market and income and living conditions.
