Report - Gender Equality Index for Serbia

The Republic of Serbia is the first country outside the European Union which has introduced the EU Index of Gender Equality. Here is the First Report on the Index of Gender Equality in the Republic of Serbia for 2016.

The Gender Equality Index is a measuring instrument of the European Union which measures gender equality on a scale of 1 (complete inequality) to 100 (complete equality) in six domains: knowledge, work, money, health, time, power, and two satellite domains: violence and intersecting inequalities.

The initiative for calculating the Gender Equality Index in the Republic of Serbia was launched by the Coordination Body for Gender Equality of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, the Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia, with the great support of the European Institute for Gender Equality in Vilnius, which developed the index in the EU. For the purposes of measuring the Gender Equality Index, the Working Group of the Government of the Republic of Serbia was established that comprises female and male representatives of all relevant public institutions, civil society organisations, as well as the professional and academic community.
