Abstract

We present a comparison of rates of employment by sector and gender in 17 Spanish regions related with real value-added per capita by sector. We also present a comparison of 96 EU regions at NUTS1 level. We find that employment opportunities in services have strong positive effect on female employment, which has experienced a great increase in the period 2000-2010. We estimate some cross-section econometric models, with regional data, addressed to relate the rate of total employment as a function production per head and the rate of female employment with the rates of employment by sector and with the educational level of population.
