One of the tasks of the Chapter is to collate statistics on as a means of monitoring the progress of the status of minorities in astronomy over time. To date, these efforts have focussed on the number of women.
It is often reported that the number of women in astronomy positions is not increasing at a rate commensurate with the availability of qualified female students and that women are not represented at highest levels. Statistics will help back up these claims.
