Decline in Number of Civil Servants in Iran

The number of civil servants dropped from nearly 4 million in the fiscal 2005-6 to 3.71 million in 2016-17 to constitute 16.7% of the total employees in Iran, suggesting that the public sector has a limited capacity for job creation, a recent report by the Majlis Research Center announced.

In view of the falling oil prices and poor state of Iran’s budget in recent years, it seems difficult to preserve the purchasing power of civil servants in the years to come, the report said, adding that the labor market is not expected to turn the corner with the help of the government.
Interestingly, the share of women in the public sector employment is 10% more than that of men, as a quarter of jobs currently held by women are jobs with government entities.
