Gender Indicators, Australia presents a summary of gender specific data in six domains representing Economic security, Education, Health, Work and family balance, Safety and justice, and Democracy, governance and citizenship. Gender Indicators, Australia, has been developed to provide a central access point for gender specific data to explore differences in the situation for women and men in Australia, and also to provide a broad basis for social analysis and research in the field of gender. Some indicators in the publication are also accompanied by commentary.

For ABS sourced data, the publication name and catalogue number are included in the footnotes of the tables, and in cases where data have been provided from customised tables, the name of the ABS survey is listed. If the data are from non-ABS sources, the source organisation’s name is included in the footnotes and relevant methodological and technical information are also included.
