Haiti

Latin America and the Caribbean

Women

Haiti ranks 152 out of 162 countries in the Gender Inequality Index, where a high rank equals high equality. Women should always be considered as a particularly vulnerable group though.

Children

Haiti has a Workplace Index score of 5.8, a Marketplace Index score of 5.4 and a Community and Environment Index score of 5.9 in the Children’s Rights and Business Atlas, where countries receive scores between 0 and 10. A score closer to 0 reflects a need for basic children’s rights due diligence, while a higher score reflects a need for enhanced or heightened due diligence. Children should always be considered as a particularly vulnerable group though. 

Persons with Disabilities

Due to differences in data collection and definitions it is difficult to compare countries on disability prevalence rates. Persons with disabilities should always be considered as a particularly vulnerable group though.

Minorities and Indigenous Peoples

According to the World Directory of Minorities and Indigenous Peoples, the overwhelming majority (around 95 %) of the Haitian population is of African descent. 

The rest of the population is mostly of mixed European-African ancestry. There are a few people of Syrian and Lebanese origin, and there is also a community of Europeans of Polish origin and a small minority of people from the Dominican Republic. 

Migrant Workers​

According to the ILO Global Estimates on International Migrant Workers, migrant workers as a proportion of all workers is 1.9 % in the subregion Latin America and the Caribbean.

Persons in Armed Conflict

Haiti ranks 13 out of 179 countries in the Fragile States Index, where a high rank equals high fragility. For monthly crisis updates, check out CrisisWatch
