MEASUREMENT

To advance the field of gender equality and empowerment, it is essential to understand the current state and quality of gender equality and empowerment measures. In order to accomplish this, existing quantitative measures were compiled and categorized along the 9 core dimensions. For each measure, published information was extracted and used to determine the measures content/structure, psychometric rigor, and use within the literature. This was done to better connect researchers, clinicians, and practitioners with gender equality and empowerment measures and promote measure validation efforts in our field.

For additional information regarding study methodology please see Measurement: Overview and Measurement: Scoring Methodology.
