Join our expert data panelists to discuss the findings from our Women's Well-Being Index launch.
The Rhode Island Women’s Well-Being Index is a multifaceted, composite measure that consists of five “dimensions”: Health, Personal Safety, Employment & Earnings, Economic Security, and Political Empowerment. Each dimension will be composed of six indicators that have been standardized and combined to create dimension scores, on a scale from zero to 100, for each of Rhode Island’s counties. The five dimension scores will create an overall Women’s Well-Being Index score for each county in Rhode Island. This database will be the first centralized source of its kind in Rhode Island.
