Measuring progress

The Office for Women will publish a biennial report that will detail progress on initiatives under Achieving Women's Equality and present relevant data to track changes over time.

The Office for Women will also collect gender disaggregated data from State Government departments and external sources such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics to enhance data on women and girls in South Australia.

"It is important to break down reporting data by gender wherever possible, so that we know where tailored strategies and responses might be needed."- www.saplan.org.au

"When data is disaggregated by sex, it can provide a more accurate picture of women's economic contributions to society, and make visible their unpaid labour in the family and in the informal sector." - Data for Development, United Nations Population Fund
