* Interpretation of the pie chart: The scoring is between 0 and 10, with 0 being the worst level of inequality, 5 suggesting middle parity, and 10 indicating perfect parity. Perfect parity connotes a situation where the proportion of men and women is equal, irrespective of the developmental level of the variable or indicator being assessed. Some countries go beyond the score of 10, thus showing that women may be more highly empowered in that subsector than men for that country. However, caution is needed when drawing conclusions based only on the scores, particularly when there are large variations in levels of developmental achievements between countries.
