Men and Women in Portugal
Homens e Mulheres em Portugal
Recognising that "Gender Mainstreaming is the strategy to achieve gender equality and that it requires the identification of the differences between men and women in all areas of society", the Statistical Office has compiled this publication. It is also stated that "the collecting, analysis and dissemination of sex-disaggregated data on regular basis are essential activities of statistical institutes to stress the gender gaps". This publication integrates a set of indicators focussed on eight areas of the Gender Thematic File: Population, Family, Employment and Unemployment, Conciliation Employment and Family responsibilities, Decision Making, Heath and Crime and Violence.
