Statistics and indicators
Indicators of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA)
The Council of the EU has adopted, since 1999, a series of indicators as a follow up of the World conference on Women in Beijing in 1995. The rotating Council Presidencies have produced reports in most of the twelve critical areas of concern identified in the BPfA. On this basis, the Council of the EU has adopted conclusions for each area covered, available here.
Statistics at European level
The Commission supports the development of specific statistics to follow up the evolution of some critical indicators concerning, for instance, the gender pay gap, childcare coverage, share of women and men in decision-making positions, time-use, etc.
In its annual report on equality between women and men, the Commission analyses the evolution of key indicators in field of equality.
