STATISTICAL REPORT ON WOMEN AND MEN IN NIGERIA 2017
In the Beijing Declaration adopted at the Fourth World Conference in 1995 on Women, the participating government expressed their commitments “to advance the goals of equality, development and peace for all women everywhere in the interest of humanity”. In order to assess the success of these goals, the Statistical Report of Women and Men is being produced annually by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) as required by the Beijing Platform for Action.
The 2016 edition of the Statistical Report on Women and Men in Nigeria takes a cursory look at the status of women and men in the country over time. Analysis on this publication are based on statistics from selected Federal and State MDAs which covers six focal policy areas of the economy: Population, Health, Education, Works, Power and Decision Making, and Violence against Women/Crime (VAW).
