Men currently outnumber women globally by 66 million. Just let that sink in for a moment. Although women tend to outnumber men in many countries around the world, some nations are in desperate need of more women, and that need has a huge impact on society. If you don’t think the shift in sex ratio (the number of men per 100 women) is a big deal then think again. The reasons why men outnumber women in some countries may just surprise you.
Global trends are changing: men are living longer, and more women are entering the workforce. Unfortunately, that means women are starting to pick up some bad habits that are negatively impacting their health. The trends of migrant workers moving throughout the globe also cause these numbers to change. The percentage of females compared to males in the United Arab Emirates is so astronomical because of migrant workers that it’s a wonder any man in that part of the world can find a date on Saturday night.
India, China, and Sweden are just a few countries where men outnumber women. Where will the sex ratio in other European nations be 10 or 20 years down the line? Should the world be concerned about this shift in sex ratio? Yes, yes it should.
