A Gender Audit of Statistics: Comparing the Position of Women and men in Scotland
MetadataShow full item record
Independent research was commissioned by the Scottish Executive to provide a review of statistics on gender differences and inequalities in Scotland across a range of key areas of social and economic life: demographic and population change; participation in political and public life; education and training; the labour market; income and wealth; care and caring; health; crime and justice; housing; and transport. The report comments on the extent and nature of differences and inequalities as indicated by statistical trends, and on changes over time. Overall, there is evidence both of growing gender equality in certain areas and of persisting gender inequalities in others.
