Females in schools, males in enterprises

More than half of expats employed in China (50.6 percent) assumed a position in schools, and only 33.3 percent worked for enterprises. There also seemed to be a profound gender difference in employment for expats living in China, whereas females tend to work in schools (62.1 percent) more than men. In such, 46.6 percent were employed by middle and public schools as well as kindergarten, and just under one fifth (19.9 percent) worked for enterprises. In contrast, males preferred to work for companies over teaching positions.
