Single by design singles dating group
We looked at the broad ratio of single men to women for singles between 20 and 64 years of age.
New York City has more than 200,000 more single women than men; Atlanta 95,000 more; Washington, D. The pattern is similar for Denver and San Francisco.
With the help of my colleague Karen King, a demographer at the University of Toronto’s School of Cities, we crunched the numbers for metros where men outnumber women and where women outnumber men, based on data from the 2017 American Community Survey.
We looked into more than 380 metros and examined single adults—including those who have never been married, and those who are divorced, separated, or widowed.
Among large metros (with more than one million people), tech-driven San Jose has the smallest ratio of single women to men (868 per 1,000).
But across all metros, the geography is more varied.
