According to 2010 population estimates, there are slightly more men than women on the planet. According to estimates, there are 102 men for every 100 women in the world. In other words, males account for 50.4 percent of every 1000 people.
The ratio is even higher at birth, with 107 boys for every 100 girls. In childhood and adulthood, boys have a larger risk of death, therefore the ratio balances out. The ratio favours women as they get older. The UAE has the highest male-to-female ratio, with 228 males for every 100 females. Estonia has the highest male-to-female ratio, with 85 males for every 100 females.
