While boys outnumber girls at ages 0-14, girls outnumber boys at ages 15-64 with the difference being almost identical to the difference in infant mortality. Now, at older ages (65+) the difference is more pronounced because we (males) also die younger (even when we manage to make it past infancy). I noticed on another site that the number of miscarriages is also supposedly significantly higher for male fetuses than it is for female fetuses. For some reason, we just seem to die alot more easily than girls, even when were still in the womb.
Pretty interesting... & I know this thread is old, but thought I might add this... not sure if it still holds true today w/advances in science, but years ago, I was reading about male/female sperm (x/y). Yes, the male produces both, but the female's acidity also has a lot to do w/determining which sperm survive (male/female). Male sperm is supposed to be a lot faster, but female sperm stronger. So w/all that being said, it would also make a difference how close to the female's fertility date the couple had intercourse. The closer to her actual fertility, the more likely the male sperm will make it there first. A day or so before her actual fertility date, the more likely the male sperm will die off & a female sperm will inseminate the egg.

Default My Sad 2 Cents

It's money that matters. Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana lack industry and other high profit businesses that GENERATE TAXES. George Wallace took a look at Alabama's school system and immediately bought text books. Look what happened to Detroit. When cars made in Detroit were being bought things were good. When Japan started flooding the United states with cars that were better built we United Statesians bought those cars and Detroit suffered and still suffers. Detroit could have redesigned their cars to compete with the Japanese cars but they didn't care. The resistance to Afro American people in Mississippi was the fear that whites were going to take an economic hit. Soon Afro Americans were going to occupy government office. Now the conglomerates own the farm lands of Mississippi. A high fat diet will kill. No matter if a vegetable is fried in vegetable oil but pork fried in lard is a killer. Fruits and vegetable are expensive and labor intensive but Mississippi has the soil and the climate to grow most anything. High fat content, alcohol, drugs and tobacco are killers. The female of the homo sapien is protected from atheroslerosis by the hormon estrogen which is why females live longer.
