But it's not just New York City that has an imbalance; nationwide there are more women than men. In the Northeast, there are 94.5 men per 100 women, in the South there are 96.1 men to 100 women, in the Midwest there are 96.8 men per 100 women, and in the West 99.3 men per women. There is some hope though. America's male population grew faster than the female population over the past decade, perhaps because men are living longer than they used to.
According to the data, women on the West Coast should have an easier time finding a mate, so long as the women back on the East Coast don't catch wind of the ratio and move out here. If you live in Manhattan, have you noticed the island's filled with more women than men?
