its because the body reconizes winter as a major threat to food source so it produces a female because if there are more females than males there would be more offspring because a female cant make another baby for nine months after there is a fetus while a male only needs to wait seconds until they are ready to impregant another women.

How does this relate? Well there's much more men working in oil fields than women.

Basically it is a form of compensation to kinda deal with less women and the remoteness.

On the same level if you look in some industries going back a bit you'll find a higher amount of gays. Flight attendants might be a stereotype but it was safe to be out in that profession. Same with many people that worked night shifts. Less potential harassment meant more freedom.

Then some areas have a breakdown in age. It's no longer true that people automatically fly to florida when they retire but Austin Tx is drawing in ample amounts of retirees.

The book Freakonomics tends to look at correlations like that.
