Male to Female Ratio by State

The ratio of males to females, or “sex ratio”, is the most basic question of demographics. While on its face the ratio simply compares the number of men to the number of women, it can allude to a state’s growth potential. The sex ratio is typically expressed as the percentage of the population that is female. 

Sex ratios can be skewered by a number of reasons, such as by the age of the mother at birth, sex-selective abortion, and infantcide. If substantial differences exist between the male to female ratio societies can experience a barrage of issues, including lowered birth rates due to a larger ratio of males and less females. 

While the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that the sex ratio has slowly increased in favor of males in the past few years, from 48.8% to 48.9% from 2010 to 2019, according to the 2020 Census, females still made up 50.5% of the total population in 2022.

See for yourself how the male to female ratio differs by state by looking at the data in the charts.
