United Arab Emirates

In 2009, labour force participation rates for the United Arab Emirates were low and markedly even lower for women and youth. Only 27.5 per cent of women of working age and 16.5 per cent of female youth participated in the labour force. Rates for Emirati men were over twice as high, 62.5 per cent for men of working age and 39.7 per cent for male youth.
