Service work does not produce a material object. Services include tasks such as call centre work, hospitality, armed forces and transportation. More men than women work in services.

The most services men work in China; then India; then the United States. 14% of the world’s population is men that work in the service sector. The lowest percentage of men working in services is 5.5%, in Haiti.

Services workers live in every territory in the world, as many services must be performed in situ. Some services, such as call centres and data entry could occur anywhere, so long as there are good channels of communication.

"These guys know accountancy, have computer skills, speak English and they are ready and willing - and that combination is a killer ..." Kiran Karnik, 2003

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide male services workers living there.
