World Population Trends and Their Impact on Economic Development

By Dominick Salvatore | Go to book overview

CONCLUSIONS
Several conclusions follow from the review of current work on indicators of the situation of women.
1. Even though much more work needs to be done in this area, recognition of the multiple dimensions of women's status makes it possible to measure selected aspects of the status of women such as labor force participation, education, and family status, which affect, and are affected by, the development process.
2. Even with existing limitations and sex biases, a number of data sources (censuses, surveys, etc.) are available for use in the construction of such indicators. A data base, developed by the United Nations Statistical Office, brings together in one source indicators of women's situation which are derived from several disparate sources.
3. Using such indicators along with compatible indicators of the development process, it is possible to know with greater precision than in the recent past how various dimensions of the status of women are related to development.
