Economic Benefits of Gender Equality in the European Union: Report on the empirical application of the model

The present report is part of EIGE's work on the economic benefits of gender equality in the European Union (EU). The aim of this study was to assess the wider socio-economic impacts of narrowing gender gaps as a result of the implementation of measures to improve gender equality in Europe.

The report contains the research to inform the modelling approach, describes the modelling approach and scenarios and presents the detailed results and conclusions of the study.

It also contains the detailed scenario inputs, the E3ME model description, the displacement effects and the methodological report on testing the model.

This study is unique in the EU context, because it uses a robust econometric model to estimate socio-economic outcomes of improving gender equality in several broad areas including education, labour market participation, wages and work-life balance.
