The World's Women 2010 uniquely reviews and analyses the current availability of data and assesses progress made in the reporting of national statistics, as opposed to internationally prepared estimates, relevant to gender concerns. Published every five years, the World's Women sets out a blueprint for improving the availability of data in the areas of demographics, health, education, work, violence against women, poverty, decision-making and human rights.

Technical note

The World’s Women 2010: Trends and Statistics presents statistics and analysis in a format and language that non-specialists can readily understand. It is organized into eight chapters: population and families, health, education, work, power and decision-making, violence against women, environment and poverty. Each chapter highlights the current situation of women and men worldwide. Where data are available, recent trends in the last 10 or 20 years, in some cases for longer periods of time, are analysed. A selection of the statistics and indicators used in the chapters are presented at the country level in the Statistical Annex (tables 1.A to 8.A) of the report.
