Gender Thematic File
Dossiê de Género
The Portuguese Statistical Office (INE) and the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality signed a protocol in 2008, during the implementation of the Third National Plan for Equality, Citizenship and Gender, under which a thematic dossier on gender was created in the statistical's office website in order to gather, at central level, relevant statistical information regarding gender and equality, and to monitor the implementation of a set of strategic programmes and instruments. This thematic dossier covers the following areas: activity, employment and unemployment; reconciliation between work and family life; crime and violence; decision; education and training; family; population; protection and social inclusion; health. For each of the areas covered, indicators were created and sex-disaggregated statistics are presented. These indicators follow, as much as possible, the Beijing Platform of Action indicators.
