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.
