Abstrakt:

The paper attempts to determine statistical correlations between the Knowledge Economy Index (KEI) and the measure of men and women’s equali-ty/inequality reflected in the Gender Equality Index. According to the authors’ hypothesis such correlations exist. The authors chose the methods of estimation of functional interdependencies between the selected data (KEI, GEI) for the states of the European Union. The analysis confirmed the occurrence of statistically significant positive correlations between the studied indicators, proving that the knowledge-based economy encouraged gender equality. The strongest correlations with the knowledge-based economy were found for such components of the Gender Equality Index as “Time”, “Work” and “Knowledge”, lesser ones for “Money” and “Health” and the smallest for “Power”
