Database: women & men in decision making
The European Commission established a database monitoring the numbers of men and women in key decision-making positions in order to provide reliable statistics that can be used to monitor the current situation and trends through time.
The database covers positions of power and influence in politics, public administration, the judiciary, and various other key areas of the economy.
Data on political decision-making at European and national level are updated quarterly , whilst all other data are updated annually, though updates to political data at regional level are included in quarterly updates in case of elections.
Figures are available for decision-makers at European, national and regional level (politics only) and currently cover 34 countries – the 27 EU Member States, one acceding country (Croatia), four candidate countries (Iceland, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey) and the remaining EEA countries (Liechtenstein and Norway).
Data are organised by domains:
- public administration
- business and finance
- social partners and NGOs
- background data
From each domain page, tables of data on specific topics can be accessed from a drop-down list. Data pages show the latest available information for each topic and include brief information on the organisations and positions covered. Moreover, for each topic an Excel file including the latest data and all existing historical data is available.
