Higher rates of non-employment among Haredi men than 35 years ago; lower rates among Haredi women: The biggest change in employment among prime working-age Haredi males is the sharp drop in employment in sectors other than education – from 70% in 1979 to just 26% in 2011. Rates of non-employment rose from 16% to 52% during this period.

Among Haredi women, employment outside of education has actually been quite steady and low over the past several decades – with little change from the 25% employment rate in 1979 to the 23% employment rate in 2011.
