Description
  • Abstract

    This file contains national-level data concerning female/male differentials over a range of demographic and socioeconomic variables for each of 69 developing countries. Breakdowns by age and urban/rural residence were frequently included. Data were drawn primarily from censuses and reliable surveys, and constitute the most recently available information at the time of collection. The 69 countries included in the file were all Agency for International Development recipients. Nine countries from Asia are included, 14 in Latin America, 36 in Africa, and 10 in the Near East.
