This report is the result from analysis of the August Labour Force Survey 2017 findings. It sets out a broad overview of trends and gender gaps, including gaps in labour force participation rates, employment-to-population ratios and unemployment rates, along with differences in labour market status and the type of activities that men and women perform in the labour market, hours spent in paid and unpaid work and sectoral and occupational segregation. It also discusses the extent to which these factors account for gender gaps in wages and social protection.
In this report, the majority of tables provide results for both EICV4 and EICV5 and highlight developments over time, as well as different patterns across provinces in Rwanda, both in urban and rural areas. Emphasis has been placed on including disaggregated results for men and women and male and female-headed households to explore gender-related aspects in key social and economic characteristics of persons and households in Rwanda, as well as other types of disaggregation, such as age group, type of habitat, etc. Where necessary, districts tables have been provided in annex.
The six thematic reports in this series are: (i) Economic Activity; (ii) Utilities and Amenities (water/sanitation/energy/housing/transport/ICT); (iii) Environment and Natural Resources; (iv) Gender; (v) Youth; (vi) Education.
