There are currently 13.5 million women in the job market, that is 48% of the working population. Whilst the rate of employment among mothers with one or two children over the age of 5 is very high (89%), it does drop with the third child (43%), particularly when the youngest child is under 3 years of age.
Level of qualification is the second main factor, after family composition, that determines female employment.
