Employment in the transport sector tends to have a lower female representation than the average. This is particularly the case for trucking and rail employment, where females account for less than 15% of the workforce. The composition of gender share in employment indicates substantial differences in preferences as employment leaning on interpersonal skills (e.g. education and health) has very high female representation. In contrast, employment involving operational skills over machinery (e.g. construction and mining) has a very low female representation. Accordingly, transport employment having a higher service composition, such as air transport, urban transit, and warehousing, have a higher level of female representation; close to one-third of the labor force.
