The U.S. Census Bureau released another pile of data this week from tghe 2010 headcount, and the tabulation of American residents by gender revealed the unsurprising fact there are more women than men in the United States.
But there are more boys than girls.
For all age groups, there are roughly 5 million fewer male Americans than female Americans (149.5 million to 154.8 million).
But when breaking it down by age groups, the male numbers are larger from infancy through age 29. At age 30, women pull ahead slightly, and get farther ahead with each five-year increment. By age 85 and older, they're approaching 2-to-1, with 1.6 million men and 3.1 million women.
