There are 154.6 million women and 149.4 million men across the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey. That's a surplus of 5.2 million on the female side..

Default Here is the reason

The disparity in population between women and men is primarily due to the fact that WOMEN LIVE LONGER. Therefore in the older ages say 65+ women may outnumber men as much as 2 to 1. Among the working aged people the populations of men and women are almost exactly the same and in children even more so.

Yes I think most people who know demographics realise this. The older a nation's population, the greater the percentage of females tend to be.

Is there any country in the world without a woman majority? It's a 1.6% surplus for women, which I think is right about normal.

More men are born than women, but men die younger. I'd think the country with the lowest lifespan might have the highest ratio of men against women?
