MasterCard Index of Women’s Advancement

July 1, 2014

Launched in 2005, the MasterCard Index of Women’s Advancement is part of a sustained effort by MasterCard to measure the socio-economic standing of women across Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa. The Index is comprised of five indicators: Business Ownership, Business & Government Leadership, Workforce Participation, Regular Employment Opportunities and Tertiary Education. Each indicator measures the ratio of women to every 100 men in each of the markets covered by the research.

In 2013, the Index has been expanded to include markets such as Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka, in addition to India, which has always been covered by the Index.

A total of 27 markets are covered in the Index: Australia, Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Nepal, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, South Africa, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
