Did you ever wonder if there were more men or women in the world?
Well, the numbers of men and women on earth are almost exactly equal. But some countries do have more men than women, and others have more women than men. About 85 nations have more women, and about 65 have more men.
According to recent counts taken in the nations of the world, the country with the highest percentage of men in its population is the United Arab Emirates.
This is largely because the nation’s population of some 860,000 includes many men from foreign countries who have come to work there. About 61 percent of the population of the United Arab Emirates is male, and only about 39 percent is female!
What country has the highest percentage of women in its population? It’s Monaco, where women make up almost 55 percent of the population.
