This section includes socioeconomic statistics disaggregated by gender, and gender inequality indicators. The section was prepared for a particular project on gender in 2006. Statistics were updated in June 2014.
Information is broken down by gender, and by type of household: complete, monoparental, and one-person households. Complete households are those where both the head and her/his spouse is present. The rest of the households (where the spouse is missing) are divided into two groups: monoparental households (with at least 2 members) and one-person households.
