This is a map of the world which illustrates where your boss is more likely to be woman.

It was compiled by office supplies company Expert Market using data from the International Labour Organisation Statistical Office.

The map shows Jamaica has a bias towards female bosses, with women accounting for 60 per cent of the country's managing workforce.

The best place to have a female manager is Central and South America, while the UK and North America lag behind. The United States in number 15 on the list with 42.8 per cent while Algeria (4.9 per cent) and Pakistan (3.0 per cent) are at the bottom of the list.

Britain comes in at number 41 out of 108 countries ranked according to their percentage of female managers, with 34.2 per cent.

There are only three countries in the world where you are more likely to have a female than male boss - Jamaica, St Lucia and Colombia.
