Occupational Gender Segregation in the Czech Republic

Franta, Michal; Jurajda, Štěpán

Year: 2007   Volume: 57   Issue: 5 -6   Pages: 255-271

Abstract: Michal Franta The authors use labor force survey data to provide a detailed description and an international comparison of the level and structure of occupational gender segregation in the Czech Republic during 1994–2004. Based on 1999 data, they find Czech occupational segregation to be close to the EU average, with the exception of young, highly educated Czech workers, who faced relatively high segregation. However, segregation has declined rapidly for young workers since 1999, mainly due to the increased representation of women within occupations, not the changing occupational structure.
