Census study finds women more likely to have multiple jobs

A recently released U.S. Census Bureau report analyzed characteristics of workers who had multiple jobs in 2013 by sex, industry, occupation and work schedule. Most multi-job workers had only two jobs, but 6.9% worked more than two jobs.

The report found women were more likely than men to have a second job at 8.8%, versus 8% for men. Women were also more likely than men to work part time at several jobs, while men were more likely than women to work a more “full-time” schedule at every job, the study found.

While it might seem reasonable to believe people take on extra jobs seasonally, such as around holidays, the number of study respondents with two jobs was mostly stable throughout 2013, according to the report, indicating the majority of multiple jobholders held at least two jobs for the entire years.

For both men and women, workers with multiple jobs were often found in the educational services and healthcare and social assistance industry. Most jobholders found additional jobs in fields they were already familiar with, but women are more likely to have a variety of jobs than men, the report found.
