Gender Indicators, Australia presents a summary of gender-specific data in six domains representing Economic security, Education, Health, Work and family balance, Safety and justice, and Democracy, governance and citizenship. It has been developed to provide a central access point to explore differences in the situation for women and men in Australia, and also to provide a broad basis for social analysis and research in the field of gender.
The August 2014 release contains an updated commentary on Living with a Disability. Some of the other Indicators in this publication have an historical commentary which may be found in the January 2013 release of Gender Indicators, Australia (cat. no. 4125.0).
The tables contain data from both ABS sources and non-ABS sources. For ABS sourced data, the publication name and catalogue number are included in the footnotes of the tables, and in cases where data have been provided from customised tables, the name of the ABS survey is listed. If the data are from non-ABS sources, the source organisation’s name is included in the footnotes and relevant methodological and technical information are also included.
