On the US Factfinder census site, you can view a thematic map of San Francisco, breaking down gender ratio by block group. I have a thematic map of the male:female ratio from the 2000 Census but don't know how to upload. But basically, females outnumber males in most of the western and southern parts of the city, and also Bernal Heights and Much of Noe Valley. The most significantly male majority areas are SOMA/South Beach/Mission Bay, followed by the Castro, then the Tenderloin, then the Mission and Portrero. See on the graph that there are significantly more males around ages 28 to 50 in SF. A 4:1 rumor is just ridiculous though.

Things may be slightly different because of the swift demographic changes that may have occurred (or not?) between 2000-2005.

if we're talking the ratio between hetero women to hetero men i don't know what it is, but 4:1 is probably accurate or higher. i've never met a man i was involved in a long term relationship in san francisco! hahaa. and i lived in the city for 25+ years.

i always met my partners outside of the city. happy, sane, single, &genuinely available straight men are hard to find in SF no matter what anyone wants to tell you.

I was meaning the ratio of hetero men to hetero women. I heard that the ratio of girls to guys was so high because of the large gay male population in the city.

I read somewhere that 20 percent of males in the city are gay (leaving 80 percent straight males), while a lesser percentage of women are lesbians (~85-90 straight women - rough estimate), so definitely not 4:1. Most likely not even 2:1. And if you look at the 30-50 age range in that chart above, that probably just evens out the ratio. Just approximating here, but definitely not 4:1.

redwoodlvr, I actually applied for a job in San Francisco and if I get it, I will be a happy, sane, single and genuinely available straight man in the city!

Accounting for the significant gay population I would say yes it would be tilted slightly in favor of guys (i.e. more women, less available guys) but women are not the compromising sort, they would rather remain single than accept someone who doesn't fit their description of the perfect man so I'd say the ratios don't make it any easier than anywhere else..it just makes for more single women who are waiting for their prince charming.
