Jump to navigation Jump to search
Sex ratio by country for total population. Red represents more females, blue more males than the world average of 1.01 males/females. (2012)
Sex ratio by country for population aged below 15. Red represents more girls, blue more boys than the world average of 1.05 males/females. (2012)
Sex ratio by country for population aged above 65. Red represents more women, blue more men than the world average of 0.79 males/females. (2012)

The human sex ratio is the number of males for each female in a population. This is a list of sex ratios by country or region.

Methodology[edit]

The table's data is from The World Factbook unless noted otherwise. It shows the male to female sex ratio by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States. If there is a discrepancy between The World Factbook and a country's census data, the latter may be used instead.

A ratio above 1, for example 1.1, means there are 1.1 males for every 1 female (more males than females). A ratio below 1, for example 0.8, means there are 0.8 males for every 1 female (more females than males). A ratio of 1 means there are equal numbers of males and females.
