About the product

Statistics on women's economic activity are often omitted in data collection programmes. This publication examines the contributions made by women to the economy in over 20 countries and presents a set of illustrative tabulations that researchers can use for an in-depth picture of the situation. The data is presented and explained in detail and provides a rich menu for practical applications in tabulating information typically derived from population censuses and labour force surveys.
