Current Gender statistics collated by the Industry show that there is an imbalance. RIBA Future Trends Data shows the following gender analysis by practice size:
|Practice Size||Mean % Female|
|1 to 10||27|
|11 to 50||33|
A comparison with WIA current status and RIBA Benchmarking Gender research shows that overall, we meet or exceed the Industry standard.
|Industry-wide permanent staff %||WIA %|
|Architects 5 years +||67||33||100||0|
|Architects < 5 years||55||45||75||25|
|Technologists / technicians||82||18||0||100|
|Architectural assistant part 2||58||42||50||50|
|Architectural assistant part 1||56||44||50||50|
|Office management / support admin||22||78||0||100|
