Equality index in Sweden in 2018, by county
Equality index in Sweden 2018, by county
This statistic shows the equality index in Sweden in 2018, by county. The lowest equality index in 2018 was measured in the Swedish county Västerbottens, amounting to 65.8. In the middle counties such as Hallands and Västra Götalands had their equality index measured at 69,1 and 69,2, respectively. Finally, Skåne had the highest equality-index in Sweden amounting to 71,8.

The index displays the female share of the parents, who were receiving different kinds of parental benefits due to staying at home with their children. An index close to 50 would suggest that women and men obtain parental benefits equally often in order to stay at home with their children. An index lower than 50 would suggest that men get parental benefits and stay at home more often than women.

The overall equality index in Sweden decreased from 77.8 in 2016 to 69.7 in 2018.

Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information:

The TCO Equality Index illustrates how the parental benefit gap is distributed among the genders. The index shows the proportion of parental benefit days taken by women. We have combined the two different types of parental allowance, temporary maternity allowance for sick child care (VAB) and the usual type of parental allowance, which is largely taken out before the child begins to pre-school (parental leave). The closer to a value is 100, the closer it is that women take out all leave for childcare. An index of 50 shows a completely equal outlet and an index of less than 50 means men take more than women.
