This Handbook shows how to develop and publish a minimum set of statistics and indicators on women's and men's position in society. It is based on lessons learned in preparing The World's Women 1970-1990: Trends and Statistics, which was a collaborative effort of United Nations agencies to present a factual view of progress made globally towards advancing the situation of women relative to men. The World's Women generated demand for gender statistics publications that could be widely disseminated to users of varied backgrounds. This Handbook is a step-by-step guide to the preparation of such publications in countries, from organizing a planning committee to promoting the final product. A main feature is the practical guidance and illustrations given on developing statistical indicators from national data sources.
