Data Base Composition
The Gender, Institutions and Development Data Base 2012 contains information on “Social Institutions” such as cultural practices and social norms that affect gender equality. By providing information on these hidden instances of gender discrimination, the data base complements existing data compilations such as the United NationsDP Human Development Report, the World Bank‘s GenderStats or the Gender Gap Report by the World Economic Forum .
