Women's Indicators and Statistics Database
Version 4, CD-ROM
The Women's Indicators and Statistics Database, Version 4 (Wistat 4),
is a global database of statistics and indicators on gender, population
and social development. It contains detailed statistics and indicators
on a wide range of topics for 206 countries or areas of the world.
The coverage of the current version has been expanded to encompass new
areas, including domestic violence, reproductive health and reproductive
rights and additional indicators and statistics on education and communication.
Wistat 4 incorporates data available up to mid-1999 which have been compiled
and updated in close cooperation with the statistical services of the
United Nations agencies. All data are fully annotated and all sources
used are listed in the tables or spreadsheets.
