Abstract

We analyze regional employment by sector and gender in Spain and found that the highest values for women participation in labour correspond to services where the rates of male and females employed people, per one thousand inhabitants, in year 2009 was 287 of which 154 (54%) are women and 133 (46%) are men. These figures are below those of the USA and advanced European countries. Employment rate per one thousand inhabitants in Spain is particularly low in Education and Health with only 46 employments per one thousand people, while in Germany and USA reach, respectively, 78 and 100. There is a high concentration of female employment in Services. We found, both at regional level of Spain and at European countries level, that industrial production has, among other factors, an important positive effect on real value-added of Services and we estimate a panel model of 7 OECD countries for the period 1994-2006.
