This data set contains representation information on women coaches and administrators from selected sport organisations and boards in the sports of athletics, basketball, football (soccer) and swimming. Data collection was based on annual snapshots taken in July/August of 2010 and 2011. The data was newly created / collated in Excel or PDF format, being sourced from individual internet websites belonging to Australian / international sports organisations and governing boards. Data was entered as total count for the number of people, in a given position, for each gender. The names of the individuals were not recorded. This research is related to \'sport psychology\', \'sport management\', \'leadership\' and \'gender equity\'.
\"Leadership\" here encompasses coaches, administrators (both of sport organisations and their governing boards) and officials (referees, judges, etc.). \"Elite sport\" here refers to competition at the state/territory level or higher, through to international competition.
