LEBANON: GENDER GAP DATA.

Summary: Lebanon came in the 135th position, up from 138th in 2015, in the World Economic ForumEe's Global Gender Gap report for 2016.

Lebanon came in the 135th position, up from 138th in 2015, in the World Economic ForumEe's Global Gender Gap report for 2016. The report quantifies the magnitude of gender-based disparities and tracks their progress over time. The Global Gender Gap Index presented seeks to measure the important aspects of gender equality through the relative gaps between women and men across four key areas: health, education, economy and politics. According to the report, the Index focuses on measuring gaps rather than levels. It captures gaps in

outcome variables rather than gaps in input variables and ranks countries according to gender equality rather than womenEe's empowerment.

Lebanon came in ahead of CEaA[sup.3]te dEe'Ivoire and Morocco while being outranked by Jordan and Oman respectively. Lebanon obtained a score of 0.598 on the main index, unchanged from last yearEe's report.
