Dear Friends

Warmest New Year Greetings! We are pleased to share with you the following gender statistics compiled by the Department of Statistics Malaysia :

Statistics on Women's Empowerment in Selected Domain 2017

This is an annual publication which presents gender statistics in Malaysia for the year 2014 to 2016. These statistics focuses on the core set of gender indicators which covers eight main domains which are economic structures, participation in productive activities & access to resources; education; health & related services; public life & decision making; human rights of women & girl children; social protection; disaster risk reduction; and peace & security.
The compilation of these statistics is based on the concepts and guide lines from, Gender Statistics Manual; Integrating a Gender Perspective into Statistics published by United Nations Statistics Division (2017), Assessing Progress in Implementation of The Asian and Pacific Ministerial Declaration on Advancing Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment published by Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and The Global Gender Gap Report 2016 published by the World Economic Forum (2016).

Women Owned Statistics 2016
The publication of Statistics for Women-owned is an outcome of the Economic Census (BE) 2016 which is the first attempt undertaken by the Department of Statistics Malaysia. The effort to publish this additional parameters is to review BE in different dimensions in tandem with the Department’s efforts to deliver citizen-centric statistics. This publication produces statistics for Women-owned to fulfill the requirement of state policy planning and development.

We hope you will share this with your networks and use these statistics to better understand the current realities of women in our country; monitor the empowerment of women at the national and grassroots levels and to use them to better inform your advocacy work.

Best regards
