Women in NSW 2013 continues the NSW Government’s evaluation of gender equity in five topic areas central to women’s lives. Some 90 gender indicators are covered in chapters on health and wellbeing, education and learning, work and financial security, leadership and safety and justice.

As with last year’s Report, it provides data for government, business and the community sector for use in policy-making, decision making and program design. This is the second ‘annual report card’ on women in NSW, and this Report is the first that allows progress to be tracked over time.

Leading indicators were selected for each topic based on the criteria outlined on page 12. Our consultations after the first Women in NSW Report has led to new indicators and other refinements in this year's Report.
