Where can you find the most and least women in the world?
Countries with the biggest gender disparities are seeing the biggest problems
While imagining a country dominated by either men or women may spur some funny images, there are actually a lot of national issues that arise when the sex ratio (a demographic term referring to the ratio of males to females in a population) is imbalanced. Globally, the number of men is slightly more than the number of women, but the numbers vary greatly from country to country.
A healthy sex ratio is a necessary factor to establishing a stable and prosperous society, and with little to no outside interference, this ratio is naturally equal. Whether they were affected by war, gender discrimination, migration, or infanticide, check out the countries with the most imbalanced sex ratios, according to data from World Atlas.
