single women vs single men

I keep seeing a graph showing that the west coast has an abundance of single men and the east coast has more single women.

I found this break down of that graph. It’s looking pretty dismal in every city for young single men.

What’s causing this?

Ignore the preview image, it’s broken into better ranges in the link

    Tech industry in the west, fashion industry in the east. One repels women, other repel men..

      Ignore the preview image. Look at the break downs. East and west are a lot more similar than you think. Single men are more common in all cities at younger ages.

      The fashion industry is way too small to explain this guys. Come on deductive reasoning

    Women are graduating from college at much higher rates in recent years.

    Filter by zip code. Nyc has way more women near the google office ;)

    So if I’m doing badly as a straight man in NYC I definitely should not move west

      If you look at the break downs every city is the same at younger ages. The real differences come with age

    This is an old graph. Filter by age 20-30. It's the same. Bye bye

      It’s the most recent census data. If you know of a more recent census please share.

      I did filter by 20-30. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough. That filter shows that there are more single young men in every city

      So NY isn’t the land of milk and honeys after all

      Your study only measures married people. It doesn't even record the thousands of men dating and hooking up in NYC 😉

    The study defines single as not having been married, not people who are not dating. The data makes a lot of sense in that context. I think most men in their 20s are definitely not looking to marry and settle down so soon.
