Women’s Status and Policies is an analytical dashboard and website that analyzes the current status of women in the areas of health, education, economic opportunities, and policies around the world. The dashboard helps users analyze how factors like open defecation, smoking, obesity, and insufficiency of trained medical staff are having a tremendous impact on the health of women in various countries. The dynamic comparison of female fertility rates for adolescents with enrollments in secondary education and tertiary education tell us about education status according to income group. Factors such as having a financial account, the number of firms with female top managers, and employment numbers for women give an understanding of where women stand economically in different regions and countries.
