Gender Equality Index

In January 2020, Albania launched its first Gender Equality Index and scored 60.4 points. This was seven points lower than the EU-28 average in the same year.

The highest score was in the domain of health, followed by the domains of work, power, and money. The lowest scores were in the domains of knowledge and time.

Albania’s score in the domain of power (60.9) is higher than the EU average, which scores 47.6, primarily due to the higher participation of women in political and economic power.
