The WomanStats Database: A Resource for Researchers, Students, Advocates, and Policymakers, Valerie Hudson, Professor of Poli

The WomanStats Project began its database component ten years ago. The purpose was to compile information that would allow project researchers to trace the linkage between the security of women and the security of states. The database now codes for over 300 variables for 174 countries, with over 110,000 data points. In addition to coding statistical data, we also code qualitative data on practices and information on laws within the society. We have created a series of innovative ordinal scales and mappings to facilitate aggregate testing. The database is freely accessible online, and is ranked in the top 2% of all websites, according to Google. This presentation will walk you through the capabilities of the database.
