Empirical Analysis of the Trade and Gender Links


Virtual Institute Teaching Material on Trade and Gender (Volume 2)

The objective of this volume is to explain to readers how to carry out empirical analysis of the impact of trade on gender inequality.

Module 1 introduces three elements that are necessary for such analysis:

  1. Empirical methodology

  2. Data sources

  3. Statistical software to analyse the data

Modules 2–4 discuss in detail specific methodological approaches (microeconomic, macroeconomic, and sectoral) and include hands-on applications that enable readers to replicate analysis from published research papers.
