Quantitative Measurement of Gender Equality and Empowerment (EMERGE)

In 2017, the UN Women reported that there are few to no measures of 80% of indicators aimed at Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5: Gender Equality and Empowering all Women and Girls. That same year the EMERGE project was funded to address the gap by compiling and reviewing gender equality and empowerment (GE/E) measures used in health and development research. GEH researchers categorize measures by GE/E dimension and psychometric properties. Information is also included in terms of measure items, scoring procedure, sampled populations, and citation use. Development and piloting of novel GE/E measures is supported through partnerships with multi-disciplinary scientists and survey researchers in India.
