The state of the art in occupational sex segregation research



Modern societies are affected by various processes of social change, like the increase of formal education, the shift of demographic structures and the structural change of work. In particular the latter phenomenon is often discussed as a crucial part of the social modernisation of societies in their course of the transition from an industrial to a service-orientated economy. It implies a shift in the distribution of occupations and jobs which is usually linked with other elements of the labour market determining in various ways the life chances of working people and their families.
