The study, by the US research group The Center for American Women in the Workplace, found that men dominated the field of female personal care managers by a ratio of about 10 to 1, compared to about 4 to 1 in the industry at large.
But, the study found that women still dominated a small number of areas of the industry, including:Women in the workplace have increasingly been in demand for jobs in the field, with some employers seeking them out, but also looking to fill a job vacancy.
The new study found women in the profession are underrepresented in key leadership positions and in certain fields.
It found that only about 10 percent of career female personal service workers were women.
The study also found that there are fewer women in key positions in personal care services, compared with the rest of the work force, but there are more women in leadership roles in some occupations.
The number of women in executive positions in the sector has been on the rise, with a record-high of 25 percent of chief executive officers in the United States.
The number of female CEO’s rose to 32 percent in the year ending March 31, 2016, up from 17 percent in 2015, the National Association of Corporate Directors reported.
But the number of men in leadership positions in those roles fell from about 14 percent to 11 percent, the report found.
Women are often in leadership, including in the finance, health care and legal sectors, but they also have roles in the financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, energy and manufacturing, and retail.
The survey found that while men in the personal care industry are more likely to be male, women have been in leadership for a long time in the area.
In general, women in business, finance, insurance, manufacturing and health care have been doing leadership roles for years.
Women and men in each of the three industries had a similar share of professional experience.
In finance, about 20 percent of the business leaders were women, compared as much as 7 percent in manufacturing and 5 percent in healthcare, according to the survey.
Women also have been making major strides in personal service since the 1990s, with the percentage of women working in the private sector increasing from 5 percent to 14 percent.
The percentage of female workers in finance increased from 11 percent to 22 percent in 2000, according the survey, while the percentage in the business sector increased from 4 percent to 5 percent.
Women have also had a major impact in the health care sector, as women have represented a significant percentage of medical personnel and nurse practitioners since the 1980s.
Women in health care also make up more than half of the workforce in the workforce.
But the number fell to about 10.7 percent in 2011, according a report by the American Hospital Association.
The numbers for nurses and doctors also have declined since the late 1990s.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 4.4 million Americans, or about 11 percent of all adults, are women and more than 1 in 5 women are under age 40.
The report found that among professional and technical positions in professional and trade occupations, women were overrepresented in technology and technical occupations, and they are now overrepresented at the same levels as men in professional, business and trade jobs.
The women are in charge of tech and technical roles, and the men are in control of technical roles.
The findings of the study are based on a study of more than 6,500 career women and men who were employed in professions from accounting to accounting executive to corporate executive.
The findings were released Friday, June 21.
