Illustrative Statistics on Women in Selected Developing Countries.
Lorimer, Thomas; Bachu, Amara
Data pertaining to some basic aspects of women's participation in selected developing countries are presented in 13 charts, arranged alphabetically by region and country within region. Countries in each of the three major developing regions--Africa, Asia, and Latin America--are included when possible. Each chart presents data for a single topic in the following sequence: age of women, residence, longevity, childhood mortality, age at marriage, marital status, fertility, literacy, school enrollment, school completion, labor force participation, sector of employment, and professional occupations. Charts contain one or more indicators of women's status and, where appropriate, a ratio indicator value for women divided by the corresponding indicator value for men so that a measure of the status of women relative to that of men is provided.
