Guyana - Gender Scorecard (English)

6 Mar 2023

Young women in Guyana are 15 percentage points more likely than young men to be out of employment, not in education, or in training. Although declining, Guyana's adolescent fertility rate is more than 2 times the average rate for countries in the same income group. Women are 3 percentage points more likely than men to have vulnerable jobs. Gender data remain scarce in key areas, hampering policies to narrow gaps between women and men, boys, and girls.
