Policy Data

To assess changes in national policies over time and their effects on health outcomes, McGill University’s MACHEquity team collected longitudinal information dating back to 1995 on maternity leave, breastfeeding, child marriage, minimum wage, unemployment insurance and family benefits policies in up to 193 UN countries. Depending on the availability and reliability of sources, and on the prioritization of regional analyses, some policy data may only be available for a subset of countries and years.

Our policy data is now downloadable in our Data Center.
