Statistics on Filipino Women

The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) maintains a GAD Database that contains, among others, statistics on the Core GAD Indicators developed by the Inter-Agency Committee on Gender Statistics (IACGS). The indicators are based on the 12 Areas of Concern of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA).

The statistical information that the PCW has collected from various statistical and non-statistical agencies are processed, organized and packaged into factsheets called Factsheets on Filipino WoMen . Generally, the Factsheets present statistical information from past to the latest available data, to show trends. Specifically, the Factsheets contain statistics on the following:
