Information about discriminatory social institutions for 180 countries and territories

The SIGI is based on qualitative and quantitative data on discriminatory social institutions for 180 countries. A detailed profile for each country compiles information on laws, social norms and practices related to the SIGI sub-indices. The coding of scores for SIGI variables is based on a consistent coding framework that is applied to all countries. To learn more about the variables and data sources, refer to the data section.
