The Equality and Human Rights Commission launched the Equality Measurement Framework (EMF) on 23 July 2009.
The Framework will be used to assess equality and human rights across a range of domains relevant to 21st century life. These domains focus directly on those things in life that people say are important for them to actually do and be. The framework monitors the central and valuable things in life that people actually achieve – such as enjoying an adequate standard of living, being healthy, having good opportunities for education and learning, enjoying legal security, and being free from crime and the fear of crime. It is particularly concerned with the position of individuals and groups with regard to characteristics such as age, disability, ethnicity, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation, transgender and social class.
