Technical notes:
The indicator refers to the number of women legislators and managers as a percentage of all workers in this occupational group. It provides an indication of the presence of women in decision-making positions.
The indicator is derived from statistics on the distribution of the employed population (in some cases of the economically active population) by occupation, collected mainly through labour force surveys. Where labour force surveys are not available, other household surveys and population censuses can also provide the requisite information.
The category “legislators and managers” refers to major group 1 of the 1988 revision of the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-88) and includes the following sub-groups: (a) legislators and senior officials; (b) corporate managers; and (c) general managers.
For those countries reporting employment statistics according to the earlier International Standard Classification of Occupations 1968 edition (ISCO-68), the category “administrative and managerial workers" includes the following sub-groups: (a) legislative officials and government administrators and (b) managers.
