        The WPS Index is a simple and transparent measure that captures women’s autonomy and empowerment at home, in the community, and in society. The index is structured around three basic dimensions of women’s well-being: inclusion (economic, social, political); justice (formal laws and informal discrimination); and security (at the individual, community, and societal levels. This second edition adds more than a dozen countries—including Libya and South Sudan—that meet the minimum requirements of recent and reliable data across the three dimensions. Those additions bring the total ranking to 167 countries, encompassing more than 98 percent of the world’s population.
