  • Abstract:

    Trends in the employment share of women working in UK construction are compared to the proportions of women in the total national workforce. The distribution of women workers across occupations in construction is examined and factors limiting the participation of women are briefly addressed. The position of ethnic minority workers in construction is analysed using recent data. Broad statistics on the extent of disability in the workforce are presented. Recent data is produced on the regional distribution of women, ethnic minorities and disabled people in the industry workforce. Finally, attention is drawn to likely future changes in diversity in the workforce and influences are noted that may yet result in greater participation of minority groups in the construction labour market.
