Table 5 Occupational status of physicians by sex, 2000. Out of the population with education in general medicine who were dedicated to household activities, only 1% were men, while 12% were women. It should also be noted that more men than women are inactive and not available; this may indicate that there are fewer women retired and pensioned.
