There Are 70,000 More Single Women Than Single Men in Philadelphia
Philadelphia is home to an estimated 70,000 more single women than single men, according to an analysis by CityLab.
Here’s another way to look at it: Philly has 1,074 single ladies for every 1,000 single dudes. That’s a slightly higher ratio than New York City — a/k/a the worst place in the world to date while female — where there are 1,072 single women for every 1,000 single men.
Conversely, here are a few cities that favor single women, per CityLab:
There are 1,101 single men per 1,000 single women in San Diego and 1,068 single men per 1,000 single women in Seattle. … The places with the highest ratios are smaller metros: Hanford-Corcoran, California, with 1,859 single men per 1,000 single women; Jacksonville, North Carolina, with 1,777; The Villages, Florida, with 1,724; Watertown-Fort Drum, New York, with 1,445; and Michigan City-La Porte, Indiana, with 1,438.
So why does Philly have so many more single women than men? We have no idea, and the report doesn’t explain it either.
