The sex ratio measures how many men there are for every 100 women in the population. Regions all across the world evaluate and map this together with age structure. In the industrialized world, women outnumber males. This is due to the fact that women worldwide have greater life expectancies than men. This is due to the fact that males often work jobs with higher death rates (construction, police, and military). Heart disease risks are greater for men. Men also perish in catastrophes at a higher rate. Because male offspring are favored in developing countries, there are more guys there. Due to the high number of abortions of female foetuses, it is prohibited in India to determine the gender of a baby while it is still inside the mother.
