Changes in the structural composition of the workforce often reflect the course of social and economic development. As a country progresses through industrialization, the proportion of workers in agriculture decreases while those in manufacturing and services sectors increase.

About a third (33.4%) of the workforce are engaged in the agricultural, forestry and fishing industry, wholesale and retail; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles employs 16.1 percent with manufacturing, mining and quarrying employing
a little above 11 percent.

The more physically intensive industries such as construction, mining and quarrying, transportation and storage are male dominated.
