Comparative Work

The Gender Asset Gap Project seeks to promote analyses and comparisons across the three countries that were surveyed. The qualitative work in the initial year of the project was designed to identify key issues that were similar and those that were different across Ghana, India and Ecuador. The qualitative work also provided the basis for developing survey questionnaires that were both adapted to each country situation but also facilitated comparisons across countries.

There are a number of comparative analyses and outputs the project will produce, including:

  • A synthesis report on the gender asset and wealth gaps and why these gaps matter for poverty and women’s empowerment.
  • A training manual that synthesizes the lessons learned and suggests how best to collect individual-level asset data and how to calculate the gender asset gap.
