Women's Day is a good occasion to take a closer look at the differences and similarities in the life of women and men. Who lives the longest? Who leaves the parental home first? Who has the highest education level? Who earns the most? Who are the main users of social networks? Who mainly takes care of housework and childcare?

These questions and many more can be answered in Eurostat’s digital publication ‘The life of women and men in Europe – a statistical portrait’, which compares the daily lives of women and men.

This digital publication contains short texts, interactive visualisations, infographics, photos and even a quiz. It is available in 24 languages:
