Indicator (long name): Gender Development Index
Indicator (short name): GDI
Definition: The Gender Development Index (GDI) measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, measured by female and male life expectancy at birth; education, measured by female and male expected years of schooling for children and female and male mean years of schooling for adults ages 25 years and older; and command over economic resources, measured by female and male estimated earned income. The index is calculated based on data on:
  • Life expectancy at birth: UNDESA (2017).
  • Expected years of schooling: UNESCO Institute for Statistics (2018), ICF Macro Demographic and Health Surveys, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys and OECD (2017).
  • Mean years of schooling for adults ages 25 and older: UNESCO Institute for Statistics (2018), Barro and Lee (2016), ICF Macro Demographic and Health Surveys, UNICEF’s Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys and OECD (2017).
  • Estimated earned income: Human Development Report Office estimates based on female and male shares of the economically active population, the ratio of the female to male wage in all sectors and gross national income in 2011 purchasing power parity (PPP) terms, and female and male shares of population from ILO (2018), UNDESA (2017), World Bank (2018) and IMF (2018).
