A PWC report, Valuing the role of construction in the New Zealand economy, stated that female employment in the core construction sector has grown at a faster rate than for males in the past decade, which has caused the ratio of male to female workers to fall from 6.3:1 in 2005 to 5.9:1 in 2015.
That growth has seen 5,887 female workers join the construction sector in the ten years to March 2015 – equivalent to a 45% increase.
