Table 15 shows economic inactivity rate estimates for working age females for 2006. The three local authority areas with the highest female inactivity rate estimates in 2006 were: Glasgow City (34.3%), North Ayrshire (27.4%) and Clackmannanshire (27.3%). The working age female economic inactivity rate estimate was higher than the corresponding male rate in every local authority area.

In 2006, the female inactivity rate estimate in the 15% most deprived areas was 40.9%, significantly higher than that for the rest of Scotland at 20.7%.

In terms of urban/rural areas, in 2006, female inactivity (like male inactivity) was most evident in large urban areas (with an estimated rate of 26.5%).
