Was there any change in 2014 in the calculation of the GII?
No, there has been no change in calculation. As in 2011 and 2013 HDR, maternal mortality ratio enters the GII truncated at 10 which affects the range of GII values which theoretically should be between 0 and 1. This is corrected by normalizing the maternal mortality ratio by 10. This intervention generally reduced the values of the GII. To facilitate the comparison a trend of the Gender Inequality Index based on consistent time series data has been calculated. Please see: Gender Inequality Index (GII) Trend (2000-2013).
