This page is a work in progress, but will hopefully get you started in finding reliable statistics and government inforamtion on gender and women. As with any resource, you want to be critical of statistics and government documents. Note where where the statistics are coming from, which government agency (or international agency) is publishing the data, and know that there might be alternative sources to investigate.
And, if you know of a good, reliable source for statistics on women or LGBTQ people that isn't included here, please let me (Erica Nicol) know. Thanks!
