Gender equality survey

The purpose of the gender equality survey is to provide an overview of the attitudes and experiences of Estonian men and women on issues regarding gender equality and inequality. The survey is commissioned by the Ministry of Social Affairs.

The survey reveals whether what is considered inherent and normal for men and women has changed over time and how such attitudes vary by group. The survey also maps men’s and women’s experiences with unequal treatment and the division of obligations and responsibilities between them.

The survey serves as input for the development of policies that promote gender equality. The survey has previously carried out five times (2003, 2005, 2009, 2013 and 2016, with the 2021 survey to be published soon).

Previous gender equality studies are available on the website of the Ministry of Social Affairs (studies published before 2022) and on the website of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications  (studies published after 2022).
