Graph (Employment Patterns in Britain)

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
The two pie charts below show some employment patterns in Great Britain in 1992.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

The pie charts make a comparative study of the proportion of males and females  employed in 6 broad categories, divided into manual and non-manual occupations.

Among the women the highest proportion was engaged in clerical or related work, which was closely followed by other non-manual employments.  On the other hand, managerial and professional jobs were the most popular occupations with men at 36% and clerical positions were selected by only an insignificant 9%.  A considerable portion of males also were interested in craft or related jobs and other manual labour, accounting for half of the total men-folk.  In contrast, the only major manual occupation that women took up was other manual labour at 27%.  Other non-manual professions were not very popular among both males and females.  The least percentage of workers both categories were general labourers.

In conclusion, more women performed non-manual occupations, whereas a greater percentage of men preferred manual jobs
