Service work does not produce a material object. Services include tasks such as call centre work, hospitality, armed forces and transportation.
Services workers live in every territory in the world, as many services must be performed in situ. Some services, such as call centres and data entry could occur anywhere, so long as there are good channels of communication. The highest absolute number of service workers lives in China, followed by India and the United States of America. The highest rate of the work force being employed in the service industry is in Luxembourg, 85 per cent, the lowest in Rwanda, just about 16 per cent.
