WELCOME FROM THE DIRECTOR
A number of indicators on the economic security of men and women have been updated with data from the 2011-12 ABS Survey of Income and Housing. This includes main sources of income at retirement, housing tenure, as well as low income and low wealth households.
Literacy and numeracy indicators have been updated with the latest 2011-12 data from the Programme for International Assessment of Adult Competencies. Participation in work-related training is also updated with data from the 2013 ABS Survey of Work-Related Training and Adult Learning.
A number of health-related tables have been updated with 2012 data from the ABS Death Registrations collection and data from the 2012-13 ABS Australian Health Survey. These include life expectancy and death rate tables, as well as data on a range of health risk factors in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (i.e. alcohol consumption, smoking, overweight/ obesity, and levels of exercise).
The recent release of the 2012 ABS Personal Safety Survey means that we have been able to update data on male and female experience of violence and stalking. Imprisonment and sentencing data has also been updated with 2013 data collected by the ABS from state and territory corrective service agencies.
The Gender Indicators product features a total of 52 key indicators, each with a key series and numerous related supporting measures. Indicators are spread across six major areas of social concern for gender equality (Economic security, Education, Health, Work and family balance, Safety and justice, and Democracy, governance and citizenship). For a quick overview of all results, visit the Summary of Key Series page.
