WomanStats - Status of Women Comprehensive Database

The WomanStats Project is the most comprehensive compilation of information on the status of women in the world. The Project facilitates understanding the linkage between the situation of women and the security of nation-states. We comb the extant literature and conduct expert interviews to find qualitative and quantitative information on over 294 indicators of women's status in 174 countries. Our database expands daily, and access to it is free of charge.

Project Research

While our database provides the platform from which many different types of research questions concerning women can be addressed, the research agenda of the principal investigators of the project is shaped by their disciplinary backgrounds and previous research interests.

Together as a team, we ask about the relationship between the situation and security of women, on the one hand, and the security, stability, and behavior of the state on the other. More specifically, we have addressed such questions as:

To address these questions, we have scaled various aspects of women's experiences from the WomanStats Database, and have used those scales to create mappings of practices concerning women, as well as used these scales as inputs into more conventional statistical analyses.Please visit: http://www.womanstats.org/firsttimeusers.html
