Women and men in Sweden – Facts and figures 2016

Women and men must have the same power to shape society and their own lives. This is the overall goal for gender equality policy. To reach this goal we need to have the knowledge about the situation of women and men in society. With the help of facts in the form of statistics we can follow the terms of women and men in a number of areas. The statistics can be used in gender equality analyses that are needed to integrate a gender equality perspective in all activities. This new version of the well-known booklet “Women and men in Sweden – Facts and figures” was first published in 1984 and is now updated every other year. As in previous editions, this edition contains easy-to-read tables and graphs with current statistics about women and men in a large number of areas.
