Gender by country

This plot shows the percentage of biographies of women by country of birth, which we call the WIGI Score. Country is determined by seeing if the place of birth is a country, or if it is a city, see if the city has a country property in Wikidata.

The changes show the change in total biographies, and change in percentage since the previous snapshot date.

As of January 2016, only about 30% of biographies, had place of birth, so this data is incomplete.
