IN THIS ISSUE
The indicators presented in the July 2012 issue of Gender Indicators, Australia, are organised in six domains representing major areas of social concern for gender equality - Economic security, Education, Health, Work and family balance, Safety and justice, and Democracy, governance and citizenship.
The publication presents data for 50 key indicators and 46 related supporting indicators across all the six major areas of social concern. Some indicators are also accompanied with a written commentary of key points and graphical representations.
New data and commentary is presented on men and women in low economic resource households and men and women who are independent contractors or other business operators. A new commentary on people who always or often feel rushed or pressed for time has also been added.
For education datacubes, tables 7, 9, 10, 11, 23 and 24 the time series has been expanded to include data back to 2001, and population estimates have been included to provide context to proportional data presented. Population estimates have also been added to tables 25 and 26.
