What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of firms that are owned by women.
Why this is important: 
Women-owned firms are those owned by sole proprietors who identified themselves as female or were categorized as female on their applications for a Social Security Number; or, in the case of firms with multiple owners, where 51 percent or more of stock interest, claims or rights were held by females. The percentage of women-owned firms is an indicator of gender equality in the region.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value.
