Atlanta May Not Be The Best Place For Single Ladies To Live: Studies Say There Are 80,000 More Single Women Than Men in Atlanta
About 80,000 more single women (ages 18-64) than single men are living in Atlanta according to an analysis of census data. However, Atlanta may not be the only city with this problem, according to data, Philadelphia has 70,000 more single women and almost 65,000 more in Washington D.C.
In February 2007 National Geographic published “Singles Map.” Which shows the single men and women population. Maybe Atlanta is not the best city for single ladies looking to marry. Single ladies specially would like to have more choices to choose from, when it comes to find love. So in the city like Atlanta most probably the odds may be against them. With this huge difference in the ratio between men and women living in the same area, how can they manage to get married and have a family?
As in 2007 it shows in the map, on the East Coast there more single women than men and more single men than women on the West coast. New York has an estimated 230,000 more single women than men, Atlanta a little over 80,000, Philadelphia about 70,000, and D.C. nearly 65,000.
According to the data there are roughly 50,000 more single men than women in San Diego 38,000 men in Seattle; and over 20,000 more single men than women in San Jose, San Francisco, Las Vegas and L.A., Honolulu. There are more single men in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Phoenix, Denver, Salt Lake City, Austin, and Portland, Oregon.
On the other side, 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. So, 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.
