The 20 Countries With More Men Than Women
Countries with the highest number of men may sound strange as we mostly thought women are more than men globally. The ratio between men and women in the world is approximately 1:1, with a slightly higher number of men than women.
For every 100 women, there are 101.8 men, which means that men represent around 50.4% of the world’s population. Although the global gender ratio is not very worrying, men and women are distributed unequally throughout the world.
In some countries, especially those in North Africa and the Middle East, men far outnumber women.
However, there are more women than men in more than 100 countries, especially in the former Soviet countries (Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus), due to the effects of war and emigration.
Countries with more men than women
Here is the list of countries with more men than women:
|Vatican City||All men||Europe|
|2.||United Arab Emirates||2.56||Asia|
Note: a ratio greater than 1, for example 1.1, means that there are more men than women (1.1 men for every woman). A ratio less than 1, for example 0.8, means that there are more women than men (0.8 men for every woman). A ratio of 1 means that there are the same number of men and women.
Men represent up to 75% of the population of Qatar. Qatar, located on the northeast coast of the Arabian Sea, has a population of about 2.8 million people, of whom 2.1 million are men.
The very unequal ratio between men and women in Qatar is mainly due to immigration. Of the total population of the country, more than 80% are foreigners, mainly from South Asian countries such as India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
