The Statistical Database System (SDBS) is the Asian Development Bank’s central statistical database that stores macro-economic and social data of its developing member countries (DMCs).

SDBS has annual data, from 1975 onward, on national accounts, prices, government finance, trade, balance of payments, money and banking, external debt, population, labor force, and social indicators. Other member countries' data on selected economic indicators as well as quarterly and monthly data of some indicators are also available. SDBS is updated continuously and new series are added based on emerging demands. This Internet version of SDBS, however, only contains data that are freely accessible by the public, from 1988 to 2012... A download module has been incorporated so that updated country and regional tables from the Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific, ADB's flagship statistical publication, can now be downloaded from the Bank's website.

... Gender differences in youth labour market conditions in the EU Member State – Gender differences in school-to-work transitions in Europe – Impact on personal life -   Policy approaches
A new report from the European network of Experts on Gender Equality (ENEGE) shows that early career patterns differ between genders with women falling more often into unsuccessful paths (inactivity, part-time, temporary contracts) than men. It also stresses the need for a greater attention to gender differences in youth policies.

African Gender and Development Index (AGDI) 2011
Using both qualitative and quantitative means of data collection and analysis, the framework for measuring gender inequality under the AGDI is broadly classified into three “blocks” which reflect the totality of human development. They are the social block (capabilities), comprised of education and health issues; the economic block (opportunities) assessing access to productive resources; and the political block (agency) dealing with women’s representation in decision-making in public and civil society arenas.
