Status of Women in the States
Given that March is Women’s History Month, I thought that some
of you may be interested in finding data regarding issues that impact
women.One such resource for this is the
Status of Women in the States 2015 from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.This new website provides
information regarding the progress of women in the United States, the 50
states, and the District of Columbia.The first set of data regarding Employment & Earnings has been
released.Forthcoming data releases will
focus on topics including Poverty & Opportunity, Work & Family,
Violence & Safety, Reproductive Rights, Health & Well-Being, and
Political Participation.If you need
data before the remainder of the 2015 information is released, check the archive
for information from previous years.
