The booming home service sector in China would "effectively" create more jobs in the coming years, said a official here Sunday.

Cui Yu, director-general of the Department for Women's Development under the All-China Women's Federation, said China's aging society, with more than 270 million families, calls for more qualified home services.

There are more than half a million home service firms and service stations across the country, offering jobs to over 15 million people, said Cui.

Women take up over 98 percent of the posts, she added.

"The home service sector plays an important role in creating jobs," she said, quoting a statement of the State Council, or the cabinet, as saying.
