The proportion of females working in agricultural holdings in Sweden has increased from around 30 % in 1999 to 39 % in 2007. Even though the total number of females employed was relatively high, only about 10 % of the legal holdings and a few percent more of the private holdings were managed by a female.
Surveys made by the Federation of Swedish Farmers (LRF) indicate that the real proportion of female managers is higher than what is shown in official statistics, where only one person can be the manager of a holding. The results from one of the surveys made by LRF show that in 2009 almost a third of all agricultural holdings owned by a private person were run by a female, alone or together with a spouse.
In an attempt to obtain figures more comparable to those in LRF's survey, we indroduce a new definition where whoever is putting in more hours in the company also is persumed to be managing the holdning. This way a holding can be considered to be run by a single person or together by a couple. With this definition the proportion of holdings with a female managing it (alone or with a spouse) increases from 23 % in 2003 to 31 % in 2007.
