4th Ask Josh: Corollary to how to get a guy

In Uncategorized on July 23, 2008 at 10:26 pm

I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t giving false information regarding the girl to guy ratio in the Church. In the book “Latter-day Saint Social Life”, edited by James T. Duke, I found out that (note: these statistics are from 1990) women in the Church far outnumbered the men in every continent and region except Africa.

For every 100 women in Africa, there were approximately 120 men in the Church.
In South America, Europe, and Mexico/Central America, women outnumbered men 100 to 80. In Eastern U.S. the girl to guy ratio was 100:90
In Western U.S. the girl to guy ratio was 100:93
In Utah, the girl to guy ration was 100:95.

Overall, there is a pretty equal guy to girl ratio in the 20-25 year range. But from 25-29 there are noticeably more women than men.

The statistics become less and less impressive as we get closer and closer to Utah. But the data still make the point: sometimes there just aren’t enough guys.
