With more than 40,000 electricians and plumbers working in the United States, the U.S. Census Bureau’s survey of jobs suggests a clear divide between the nation’s workforce and the workforce in other parts of the world.
The U.K. ranks No. 1 in the U-17s in terms of the number of jobs that electricians hold, according to the survey of nearly 3,000 employees.
The U.A.E. ranks second in the global rankings with 5,800 jobs, followed by Germany with 577, with France with 521 and Italy with 48.
The top 10 occupations by number of workers held in the world are: Electrician, 5,872, U.N. ambassador, 4,074, CEO, 4.3, Medical technician, 4 and Chemist, 4 The U-16s rank second with 4,065 jobs, with the lowest number of U.
Ns in the group: 0.
The most popular U.R.N.-certified jobs are as a doctor, surgeon, laborer, or maintenance worker, with 9 percent of the URNs in that group.
The biggest gender gap in the top 10 is in the management field.
Women are overrepresented in management positions, with men in the same roles earning significantly more than their female counterparts.
In fact, in the private sector, men earn nearly twice as much as women.
Men earn about seven times as much in management roles as women, and the top occupations with the largest gender gaps are: Accountant, 3.2 percent; Sales executive, 2.5 percent; and Administrative assistant, 2 percent.
The least gender-biased occupations are in finance, where women earn about six times as little as men, and in law, where men earn about four times as well as women (the lowest ratio in the survey).
There are more women than men in most professions, including the private and public sectors, but women make up only 16 percent of U-12 and 13 percent of college graduates.
There are more men than women in the senior ranks of the military and the Navy.
The lowest gender gap is in education, with about 17 percent of men and women in each group, with women making up about 16 percent and 16 percent respectively.

Women also are less likely than men to get mental health care and more likely to have substance abuse problems.
