Although a number of measures have been introduced during the last few years, the trend continues in a more traditional direction, shows the market report by the Institute for Social Research (ISF).
According to the report, while six out of ten workers in the public sector were women in 1991, the number was increased to seven in ten in 2009. The proportion of women in the private sector declined during the same period from 38 to 36.3 percent. There is also a common inclination to change to the the public sector among women who works in the private sector after they have children.
The survey also shows that more men than women with the same education begins in the private sector and are often in leadership position.
