Once-Male Dominated Jobs Now Mostly Held by Women


To determine the jobs that were formerly dominated by men that are now dominated by women, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on employment by gender for over 500 detailed occupations from the Current Population Survey of the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Occupations were ranked based on the percentage point change in the share of female employees in a given occupation from 2010 to 2020. Only occupations in which women constituted less than 50% of total employment in 2010 and more than 50% of total employment as of 2020 were included. Supplemental data on median weekly earnings and total employment also came from the BLS CPS.
