Dun & Bradstreet Women Index 2018

Did you know that entrepreneur women in Hungary are the largest owners of shares in companies in comparison to countries in the rest of Europe? Or that women in Slovenia have the largest share of earned revenues and net profit?

For some years now, Dun & Bradstreet has been publishing the Dun & Bradstreet Index of Women Influence (BIWI) that highlights the influence women have on the economy, in several European countries.

The Index is developed by Dun & Bradstreet with the participation of certain markets throughout Europe. It measures the influence of women in regard to four parameters: share in the number of companies, share in the number of employees, share in revenues and share in net profits. The base for the index is the share of women-owned companies, compared to the total number of companies.

There are many key findings, such as that in most countries, women owned companies, earn on average significantly less than men-owned companies. In Slovenia, Hungary and Austria, women have a higher influence on domestic economy than the average for all countries.
