The biggest proportion of men, which is 20%, is skilled traders, whereas only 3% of women holds this occupation. Likewise, personal service and administrative and secretarial works are the most famous professions for females, while they show the least popularity for males (respectively 14% and 23% opposed to 3% and 5 %) It’s also important to state that, the number of managers and senior officials, process, plant, machine operatives and sales and customer servants differ by 6-10% by their sexes.
