Alright, let me try here.

One in seven - original sentence.

meaning: 1job out of 7 jobs - total 7 jobs
One seventh is a ratio ; 1/7

This does not necessary mean there are 7 jobs as said in the sentence.

this could mean anything from:
1/7 - 7 jobs
2/14=1/7 - 2 jobs out of 14 jobs
3/21=1/7 - 3 jobs out of 21 jobs
4/28=1/7 etc...

hope this helps.
and they all are one seventh with different number of jobs.
