This unique report issued by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs' Statistics Division presents sex disaggregated statistics on such topics as health, demographics, education, work, violence against women, poverty, human rights and decision-making.  As the fourth World's Women report issued since 1991, this edition attempts to address some of the concerns raised in previous reports regarding the availability of national statistics on gender.  Strategies for improving national collection of data as well as mainstreaming gender concerns into national statistical frameworks were also included in the report.
