Progress Report

This progress report is composed of one matrix analyzing the intersection of gender and other socioeconomic sectors across 12 Arab countries. The matrix is organized alphabetically by country, and are also divided into six major categories: workforce, economy, women’s health, education, politics, and other. Under each category, we have compiled data from several research institutions, looking at the longitudinal patterns of various statistics (such as Female to Male Unemployment Ratio, or Maternal Mortality Rate) in each country. The longitudinal research spans from the years 1990-2018, showing the amount of gender-based progress that has been made over the course of approximately two decades.

The progress in each country, for each statistic, has been mathematically analyzed and categorized based on the rate and amount of progress made over a given timespan. The progress categories are; “Sustained Goal”, which indicates that a country has reached and sustained the category’s goal; “Significant Progress”, which indicates that a country has shown a considerable amount of improvement in a given statistic over the years; “Minimal Progress”, which indicates that the country has been slightly improving in a given statistic over the years; “Stagnation”, which indicates that the country has been consistent, but not improved in a given statistic over the years; and “Regression”, which indicates that the country has been doing worse in a given statistic over the years.

Categories:

 

Sustained Goal: When the amount (number or percent) remains within 2% of the maximum.

Significant Progress: When the amount (number or percent) increases by more than 5% from the first year to the next year.

Minimal Progress: When the amount (number or percent) increases between 2% to 5% from the first year to the next year. 

Stagnation: When the amount (number or percent) remains within -2% to 2% from the first year to the next year. 

Regression: When the amount (number or percent) decreases by more than 2% from the first year to the next year.
