Abstract: The relationship between gender of a person and their employment status has been examined in the article. The aim of the article is to answer the question of whether the fact that a given person is a woman or a man has an impact on their being either self-employed or an employee or helping in conducting family economic activity without agreed remuneration. The analysis has been carried out separately for seven selected sections of the Polish economy: 1. agriculture, forestry and fishing; 2. manufacturing; 3. construction; 4. trade and repair; 5. transportation and storage; 6. education; 7. human health and social work activities. Cramer’s V has been used to examine the strength of relationships discussed in the article. A relevant test of significance has been used to verify the formulated statistical hypotheses.
