The dramatic political upheavals that occurred in 1989 marked the end of a long period of intense international dispute over the appropriate organization of modern industrial societies. However, the transition that has been set in motion has so far generated much political turmoil and economic crisis. World output grew by 3.1 per cent, compared with 4.4 per cent in 1988. The problem arising from the external debts of the developing countries persisted.



Socio-economic attainment of women

In the preceding issues of the World Economic Survey, for 1988 and 1989 broad indicators on the socio-economic attainment of women were presented, with particular attention to the participation of women in economic activity. The present analysis discusses income distribution, education, health, nutrition and fertility. Emphasis is placed on examining progress made in the access of women to the development process and to advances in technology and medical science.
