Compilation of figures, data and facts on the topic of gender equality in Austria

legal equality between women and men in Austria, as enshrined in the Federal
Constitution, has not yet led to de facto equality in all areas of life. The
empirical presentation of differences and similarities in women’s and men’s
realities and opportunities is an important prerequisite for increasing
awareness of gender-specific inequalities, for making changes measurable and pointing
out specific policy action fields related to gender equality.

this end, a compilation of figures, data and facts on the topic of gender
equality in Austria is being developed. The matter of gender equality is being
examined by means of a large number of indicators that fall into the following
six main gender equality dimensions:

  • Gender-specific educational pathways
  • Distribution of paid and unpaid work
  • Socio-economic situation
  • Health and care
  • Representation and participation
  • Gender-based violence.

The analysis uses existing data material. The focus lies
on the structured presentation of the current status of gender equality and – to
the possible extent – on mapping changes over time. However, this project also
aims to identify any data gaps.

The project is being carried out on behalf of the Federal
Ministry for Women, Family, Integration and Media in cooperation with the
Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO), the Institute for Advanced
Studies (IHS) and prospect Consulting. Mag.a Christine Mayrhuber, WIFO
is responsible for the overall project management.
