How do architects stack up against other professions on male/female ratio? Recent data on workers in the United States reveals some compelling information on where women are working - and where men hold sway. Construction work leans heavily male, while research and analyst work is led by women. Where does architecture fit on the scale? See the full infographic showing the percentage of men versus women in architecture after the break.

In a recent infographic published by the data analysts at FiveThirtyEight, professions are ranked according to percentage of men in each workforce. According to United States census data, architects rank in the high end of the mid-range at 77.8% male. Architects have a significantly larger male workforce by percentage than most of the types of positions they often employ, including office clerks, financial managers, and business and marketing staff.
