Calculation Based on Available Data

This indicator measures the share of female agricultural landowners and rights bearers among the total agricultural landowners and holders in a country.

In order to complete this indicator, you will need two datasets:

  1. Number of women living in an agricultural household with legally recognized document on agricultural land OR the right to sell it OR the right to bequeath it.
  2. Total number of individuals living in an agricultural household with legally recognized document on agricultural land OR the right to sell it OR the right to bequeath it.

(Important note: only one of these conditions must be met for the above datasets, not all three.)

Indicator derives SDG 5.a.1, with Blocks 1 and 2 respectively deriving SDG 5.a.1(b) and SDG 5.a.1(a).
