THE CALIFORNIA WOMEN’S WELL BEING INDEX
Created in partnership between the California Budget & Policy Center and the Women’s Foundation of California, this index is a multifaceted, composite measure that consists of five “dimensions”: Health, Personal Safety, Employment & Earnings, Economic Security, and Political Empowerment. Each dimension is composed of six indicators that have been standardized and combined to create dimension scores, on a scale from zero to 100, for each of California’s 58 counties. The five dimension scores have been combined to create an overall Women’s Well-Being Index score for each county.
The data is available for download in excel format and there are policy suggestions to help advance the state of women in our state. Click the image below to find out how the women in your county are doing!
