Statistics:Social Institutions (2)
Social institutions comprise norms, values and attitudes. They often manifest themselves in traditions and cultural practices that are performed by the members of a society. Social institutions have often been in existence for centuries and thus reflect the deeply enshrined normative value system of people.
Social institutions are particularly relevant in the area of gender equality. In many countries, the empowerment of women is a relatively new phenomenon that stands in stark contrast to the traditional way of life. Several examples show how social institutions can obstruct or completely annihilate formal legislation intended to favour gender equality. The Gender, Institutions and Development Data Base of the OECD Development Centre features following indicators (please click on the red "i" to get more information on variables; also see statistics of the family code)
