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.
