The detailed national composition of industry in Britain, 1981

.

The mix of employment by employee’s status and sex is shown in over sixty industries for the entire nation from the national information system using reflected histograms — software by author on an Archimedes computer.

The detailed division of labour between men and women, in full-time and part-time employment is shown for all the major industries. The predominance of male full-time employment in manual labour such as mining, but also in research and development firms is very skewed. Almost as many women work part-time as full-time.
