We are pleased to announce that EIGE has recently taken over the European Commission’s database on women and men in decision-making. The data will complement other areas of gender statistics already covered by EIGE’s Gender Statistics Database, such as employment, education and health.
The number of women holding decision-making positions has been gradually increasing over the last ten years, whether in politics, business or media. The latest figures on women and men in decision-making show that the EU is taking a slow but steady path towards gender representation (view more in the infographic).
Data on decision-making are collected for the 28 EU Member States and seven other European countries (four EU candidate countries: Montenegro, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey, and three EEA countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway). Data on national and European politics are updated quarterly and data on key decision-making positions in large listed companies are collected every six months. Other data is updated annually.
