Gender Statistics

Under the active promotion of the policy of gender mainstreaming by central departments, the Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics of the Executive Yuan has published six versions (since 2007) of “Women and Men in R.O.C.(Taiwan) Facts and Figures” every year. This gender statistics have served as the foundation for the work of gender analysis and gender budget.

The United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) found a composite index, Gender Inequality Index to measure and reflect inequality in achievements between men and women in three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labor market. With date being plugged in the composite index, the GII value of Taiwan would be 0.061 in 2011, ranked as the 4th position, after only Sweden, Netherland and Denmark, among 146 countries in the UNDP ranking. In Asian countries, Taiwan is better than Singapore, Japan and the Republic of Korea, indicating the loss of potential human development due to gender inequality in these dimensions is comparatively less.
