Gender inequality in access to certain professions is an obstacle to achieving genuine equality between men and women. Even now, in developed countries, women occupy only about 25% of technical positions, and the profession of land surveyor in many countries at the level of social stereotype is often considered to be “male”. Despite the fact that from 1995 to 2018, the gender inequality index in Ukraine decreased from 0.480 to 0.284, the problem of equal access to engineering professions, such as the profession of geodesist or land surveyor, still requires special attention. Taking into account that in Ukraine the activities of land engineers, geodesists and land appraisers are separately regulated and certified, the gender balance was studied among professionals working in these areas at the national level and in the context of individual regions based on data from the relevant state registers.
