contribution of Mongolian women in the country’s extractive industry. The research covered not only
private and government owned companies engaged in various geological, technical, mining and services fields but the country’s mining schools too. The comprehensiveness of study is also ensured by a number of people of the mining sector that have been counted for in this research.
According to the National Statistics Office data, there were 37 thousand people working in Mongolia’s mining industry at the end of 2014. The total number of employees of the companies that participated in our survey was 16,000 people so WIMM concludes that the survey has reached out to at least 35 percent of all worker of the country’s mining industry. This is why WIMM team is confident in the research findings as being accurate and reflective of the current situation.
The survey gives statistical profiles of the polled mining companies and data on women’s participation
in the country’s extractive industry and discusses the situation with the wages disparity.
WIMM’s findings are very encouraging. Mongolian women present one of the highest in the world
participation in the national mining industry as the survey numbers show.
