Attempt to recognize associated factors of gender equality, as one of the main indicators for social development, has acquired an outstanding role in social/demographic studies in recent years. However, limited attention has been made to the relationship between population dynamics and gender equality. To this end, the current study aimed to assess the relationship between population dynamic (fertility, mortality and migration) and gender equality using a descriptive-analytical approach and secondary data analysis and Time Series model during 1956-2011 in Iran. The findings are indicative of a considerable increase in gender equality during the study period. From among population dynamic, women’s life expectancy and gross migration rate had a positive and statistically significant effect on gender equality, while total fertility rate (TFR) did not show any statistically significant effect (upon controlling the effect of under 15 years old population proportion at final model). According to the stationary R-square of the fitted time series model, three mentioned variables could explain around 52 percent of variations in gender equality during the study period.
