First published in 2004, Women and Men in Ireland is an annual publication illustrating the relative status of women and men in Ireland according to a set of key social indicators. The report is structured around 76 indicators covering seven sectors: population, employment, social cohesion and lifestyles, education, health, crime and transport. The 76 indicators were chosen because they help to: i) Identify important gender differences in the activities of men and women, ii) Assist users to identify the underlying reasons that explain these differences, and iii) Present the situation in Ireland in an international context. It is not known to what extent, the reports are used in policy making.
