Women and Girls in Tasmania 2016 Fact Sheets

A key action under the Tasmanian Women’s Plan 2013-18 is improving the evidence-base we use for policy and service development.  To this end, a series of women’s Fact Sheets have been developed and follow on from the Women and Girls in Tasmania statistical report the Government published two years ago.

The Department of Premier and Cabinet has been working with the University of Tasmania’s Gender and Policy Strategy Group led by Dr Megan Alessandrini to provide an up-to-date statistical snapshot of women and girls in Tasmania.

The data comes from a wide range of most recently available published and unpublished sources and can be used by government, non-government and private sectors to inform policy development and service delivery.

Importantly, the Fact Sheets will help us measure change during the coming years and assess our progress in achieving equality for women and girls in Tasmania.
