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 surveyors in many countries at the level of social stereotype is often considered to be "male". Although 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 land surveyors, 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. The study found that at the end of 2019, 3770 persons have a qualification certificate of a land surveyor, of which 41% are women. There are 1150 certified geodesists in Ukraine, of which only 20% are women. The best gender balance is among land appraisers, the total number of which is 1100 professionals, and the difference is only 30 persons in favour of men. Gender inequalities in access to the profession vary significantly across regions. Male land surveyors prevail in the west, while female land surveyors dominate in the east and south.
