Men dominate jobs with ICT education in Latvia

According to Eurostat figures published October 16, in 2022, there were 3.0 million people employed with an ICT (Information and Communication Technology) education in the EU, 6.7% more than in 2021 (2.8 million).

Men represented 84.4% (2.5 million) of employed people with an ICT educational background, an increase of 7.1% from the previous year (2.4 million in 2021), while women represented 15.6% (463 100) of those employed, up 4.4% from 2021 (443 400).

Latvia was one of the countries in which men appear to outnumber women to the greatest extent, though Eurostat noted that in Slovakia, Latvia and Slovenia "data on women in employment with an ICT education background are not available because their reliability level does not reach the publication thresholds."
