From the first glance it is clear that manual work is more popular by3 men than by women. While only 31 percent of females are employed in manual labour, more than one half of all male have hand-work. Besides by males category craft or similar is almost a quarter, while by females it is only 3 percent, although “other manual work”  by both group is slightly more than 25 percent

As for non-manual work the most numerous category by male is “managerial and professional” with 36 persent4, by female it has also significant mark (29 percent), but “clerical and related” takes the first place with practically one-third of all female-employers5 

We conclude, that some categories have almost the same marks by female and male, but other categories like “craft and similar” show big differences.
