Sources of gender-desegregated data


This is something I have not been previously asked about and now I have agreed to speak to a class about gender-desgregated data sources.  There are some good web pages at Health Canada and DSP and a few others but I am wondering if I am overlooking something in DLI? Any suggestions about sources of gender-desgregated data would be greatly appreciately.


Most of the data in the DLI collection can be disaggregated by sex. Even the household level surveys have some capacity for this. However, the GSS (General Social Survey) series did come to mind, as it covers a wide range of topics for which gender-based analysis might be appropriate (i.e. victimization and social networks).
