Does anyone notice the shortage in the number of available men in the eastern cities & the surplus of available men in the western cities?
I wonder what could be the cause for this?

I'm moving east.

There was an article about this a while back. But it showed that when you narrow the age range, things even out. For example, If I restrict to singles in their 30s, both west and east coast come out the same. But you will see a lot of men in tech-heavy California. They call San Jose Man Jose. But they also have another saying there. The odds are good, but the goods are odd.

I noticed the same thing too!
While living in the DC Metropolitan area, I notice that there are way more women here than men. This is probably why many hardworking, single, attractive women like myself are still single.

When it comes to finding a good, single man in this area, your odds are just like the odds of winning the "Power Ball Lottery" because there is a huge gap in the male to female ratio. Men in the eastern cities seem to take advantage of this male shortage because 90 percent of my friends from this area admitted to being cheated on by their spouses.

I think looking at ratios for any reason is irrelevant. OK, I live in a college town, so I guess there are a lot of male college kids. How exactly does this benefit ME?!

Two things -

Mining/drilling and immigrant workers.

Immigrant workers are the main factor. In the western US they are often Latin American males, who work construction, or farm labor, and they send money back home to the wife and family. A very significant number of migrant workers and immigrants are males who do not bring their families along.

Mining and drilling, for oil, coal, iron, whatever - is male-dominated, and much bigger out west. This is a factor in some places, but not everywhere. Australia is a good example of this phenomenon. The iron and bauxite-rich interior regions of the country are overwhelmingly male, and the urban east coast is overwhelmingly female.
