About Our Project

The Gender Asset Gap project was created in 2009 to demonstrate the importance and feasibility of collecting individual-level data on women’s and men’s access to and ownership of property. The fielded surveys were representative at the national level for Ecuador and Ghana and at the level of the state of Karnataka, India. These data sets have been used to calculate measures of the gender asset and wealth gaps for these three countries.
