The latest statistics released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has revealed that the population of women is continuously growing than that of men. It has been recorded that the population of women has hit almost 12 million for the first time in the country.

According to the director of demography, Beidar Cho said that the nations sex ratio is at 99 males to 100 females. However this ratio varied from state to state and some parts of the country have a greater number of male population.

“For every 100 females aged 90 years and above, there were on 55 males, while for every 100 female centenarians there were just 32 males”, said Beidar.

The director further said places like Western Australia and Northern Australia, all states and territories have a higher number of women than that of men.

Despite the increased number in females, the Australian Bureau of Statistics further said the sex ratio is not always favouring women; at birth there are 106 males born for every 100 females; however the figure is balanced out later in the life because of the higher rate of male mortality at younger stages.
