vrouwendag_en.pngIncrease of the proportion of working women with children

In the context of International Women's Day, Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, takes a closer look at the employment rate of women with and without children.

In Belgium, on average 75.3 % of women aged 25 to 49 are in work. For men in the same age group, this proportion amounts to 84 %. The number of children (up to 16 years old) in the household makes a big difference.

When it comes to employment, the proportion of women without children is practically the same as that of men: 77.5 % of women and 78.1 % of men without children have a job.

If the woman has one child, the employment rate decreases to 76.5 %, while it rises sharply to 88.7 % for men with one child.

However, a woman with two children is more often in work than the average of women: 79.1 %. The employment rate is also the highest for men with two children: 93 %.

For women with three children or more, the employment rate decreases sharply: 56.8 % of them are in work. For men with three children or more, this rate amounts to 84 %.
