Role of Gender Gap in Economic Growth: Analysis on Developing Countries versus OECD Countries

Published By: Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, M | Published Date: January, 01 , 2017

This study investigates the effects of the gender gap on economic growth by using a composite gender gap index from the World Economic Forum. The index captures the multidimensional aspect of the gender gap, which includes gaps in opportunities and outcomes. Previous studies on the effect of gender inequality on economic growth have focused on the unidirectional aspect of inequality, such as gender-wage inequality.
