Purpose

Indicators for Change 2009: Tracking the progress of New Zealand women (Indicators for Change 2009) provides information on the current social and economic status of women. It builds upon Indicators for Change: Tracking the progress of New Zealand published in October 2008.

The purpose of the report is to provide policy-makers, researchers, and planners with a way to track progress for women, and identify areas where more work may be needed.

As with most indicator sets, the ones used in this report act as a „dashboard‟. The aim is to:

  •  give an overall snapshot of how women, or particular groups of women, are doing
  •  focus on some areas where women are not doing so well
  •  include some areas that are significant for women, but are not a focus of other monitoring reports
  •  provide a 'gender angle' that complements and expands on monitoring from other reports.
