The SIGI is based on qualitative and quantitative data on discriminatory social institutions for over 100 countries and economies. A detailed profile for each country and economy compiles information on laws, social norms and practices related to the SIGI sub-indices. The coding of scores for SIGI variables is based on a consistent coding framework that is applied to all countries and economies. To learn more about the variables and data sources, refer to the data section.
