Self-employment among the youth

The gender difference in self-employment is generally visible across all age groups. In all observed OECD countries except Luxembourg, men have consistently higher self-employment rates than women for the age groups 15-24, 25-34, and 55+. For employed persons aged between 35 and 54, by contrast, the female self-employment rate exceeds the male self-employment rate in a number of countries. Though on average the self-employment rate is higher for men in this age group as well, the relative average gender difference between self-employment rates is the smallest of all age groups.
