The Status of Women in Your County: A Community Research Tool
by Misha Werschkul, Barbara Gault, Ph.D., Heidi Hartmann, Ph.D. (November 2004)

This tool is a joint project of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and the James A. & Faith Knight Foundation, to build capacity among community groups to assess and track the status of women in their regions. The tool provides instructions for finding information on the status of women in your county. County-level indicators can inform local policy by identifying areas of need and providing a context for local policy agendas. The suggested indicators in this tool match the state-level indicators used in the Status of Women in the States reports, published by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.
