I can't find any statistics for sex ratio by individual states in the US. I found a list for the cities with the highest percentage of males 18-34 that are never married, but that doesn't tell me how many males there are. I am wondering which states have more males than females and by what ratio, in the 18-34 age group? Anyone find any stats on this? I heard Alaska has a high male-to-female ratio, but I don't know if that's the highest.

And if possible, I'd like stats that DON'T include military personnel stationed in that state. That would throw off the stats.

They do tend to list Military Cities as top cities for Single Men that age range...

Curious as to how that would throw off the stats if there are ALWAYS going to be men stationed there.

Is the following what you want?

Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitors sites is not allowed

Alaska, Nevada, Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah seem to be the only "majority male" states. The state with the highest female majority is Mississippi.

If you want something on "men currently married versus "women currently married", by state, there's the following.

The stats alone do not provide much info. For instance, in the early '00's San Diego County had a high male-to-female ratio but what the stat did not tell you is that most of the males were laborers without a HS education. I'm sure parts of SF have a huge male-to-female ratio but if you are looking for a hetro date, that might be difficult. Must take all stats in context..

lol Slow down there, buddy. I am not asking because I've got my bags packed read to move to the next city to pick up dudes. I am simply curious because it seems worldwide that females outnumber males, so I would be interested to see where they don't and why. I always ask questions like these. I'm interested in statistics like that. Not because of any ulterior motives.

Take a look at China. Exact opposite there. Many more males than females.

Qatar gas the highest proportion of males to females. Now I'm just trying to narrow it down to the states and see where the men outnumber the women, outside of military bases.

Thats interesting. China and India promote (or in China's case, you are subject to large fines) abortion of women as they are considered a burden in the culture (Dowerys: Male children care and take in their homes their Patrilineal families, etc..).
Qatar had a huge imported labor force of men (Phillipinos and Sri Lankans mostly) who are vastly underpaid, live in decrepit and many times homeless conditions. There was until this '09 recession, a massive building boom there. I would assume that this male labor force has returned home as the money has dried up and the population has returned to natural proportion (which is something like 11 women to 10 men).
