This section includes socioeconomic statistics disaggregated by gender, and gender inequality indicators. The section was prepared for a specific project on gender in 2006. Statistics were updated June 2014.
Information is broken down by gender, and by type of household (complete, monoparental, and one-person households). Complete households are households in which both the head and her/his spouse are present. The rest of the households (where a spouse is not present) are divided into two groups: monoparental households (households with at least 2 members) and one-person households.
Information taken from this database should be cited as "Source: SEDLAC (CEDLAS and The World Bank)" or "Source: Socio-Economic Database for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEDLAS and The World Bank)." We advise that researchers reference the date on which they consulted the database, as statistics may change.
