Sex differences in adolescents’ occupational aspirations: Variations across time and place

Fig 2

Percentage girls and boys aspiring to work in people-oriented occupations (panel A, red), things-oriented occupations (panel A, green) and STEM occupations (panel B, blue). Note that in all countries, more girls than boys aspire to a people-oriented occupation, hence all (red) points are below the line of equality (45°); similarly, in all countries, more boys than girls aspire to a things-oriented or STEM occupation, hence all green and blue points are above the lines of equality. Note that the international variation in things-oriented and STEM occupations is much larger for boys than for girls.
