What is its purpose?

The indicator measures the extent to which the management positions of certain employers or in a certain sub-sector in a given geographical area are held by women. It can provide insights into women’s power in decision-making and in the economy.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:

 

1) Define what types of jobs can be considered as “management positions”.

 

2) Use interviews with employers and reviews of secondary documentation (e.g. overview of employees and their positions) to identify:

   - the total number of occupied management positions among the target employers / the target sub-sector in the given areas 

   - the number of these positions that are held by women

 

3) To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of management positions held by women by the total number of management positions among the target employers / the target sub-sector. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.

Disaggregate by

Disaggregate the data by the types of management positions and other relevant criteria.
