Pennell, Maryland; Showell, Shirlene
Compiling available statistical information on the status of women in health careers, the chart book was designed for use at the International Conference on Women in Health. Tables and figures illustrate statements through statistics and graphs. In the section dealing with the United States, tables present a broad statistical base, and figures illustrate that particular information in terms of women. Information regarding the United States is divided into three sections: (1) a summary discussing the labor force with 11 tables and figures; (2) information on different health practitioners containing 20 tables and figures; and (3) educational data tracing enrollment, graduate figures, and type of institution, with 19 tables and figures. Information regarding women and health occupations in Australia, Colombia, France, Finland, the Philippines, Poland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the USSR are presented in the international section of the document. Twenty-three tables and 15 figures augment the international data. A glossary of 52 related terms is provided. (LH)
