Hi guys. I was watching video on youtube and i was surprised to hear that in Iowa women heavily outnumber men (like 1 to 5)... How truthful this statement is?

Here is a link to the video (watch from 1:50):

And what in your opinion city in the US have much more women than men? Is there any female version of Seattle?

Thanks.

My opinion based on attending conferences around the state: as a whole, women outnumber men in the colleges (ages 18 - 26); however, outside of the campuses, I believe there are more men then women.

In the colleges, there are still more men in engineering (STEM careers in general) but there are more women enrolled.

I'm sure there are some stats around somewhere. I don't think it's as high as 5:1.

Per Wikipedia, 2010 census is 49.5% male, 50.5% female.

Yeah, if it sounds ridiculous, it probably is. And the main reason for the .5% (.005) disparity is women living longer.

Do you mean it's "worse" because women outnumber men 100 to 93 in Hamilton County, Ohio? I think that would be a good stat for men.

1 to 5?.. That doesn't exist anywhere in the states. (except maybe the opposite in places like oil fields and off the grid in Alaska)
