The publication ‘Country profiles’ is a complementary publication to the main report on the Gender Equality Index. The country profiles offer a snapshot of national contexts, enhancing the usefulness of the Gender Equality Index scores and supporting their interpretation as a tool for pol icy-makers and other users. In addition, this publication contains other contextual variables that are relevant to better understand the scores.
The publication includes the Gender Equality Index scores for 2005, 2010 and 2012, allowing for an assessment of the progress made in the pursuit of gender equality in the EU and individual Member States over time. Moreover, the present update makes a first attempt at populating the satellite domain of violence.
