DC has the same pattern, but the diagonals are Avenues named after the States.

Took them for a ride in the country and left them where the coyotes might feast.

I know China is down because of the one child policy but I wonder why the others fall below what I would expect to be in the 49% to 51% range?

You can't get real numbers in a closed society especially one where women are property.

edit add: There is a creepy factor to this. Women without rights can be killed without any state reaction. Thinking of the number of young males who are unattached with no hope of building a family... I'd go fucking jihadi.

A number of factors could be in play--more random death for women in general in the name of honor, higher illness-leading-to-death because women aren't worth wasting medical care on, women killing baby daughters either to please their male relatives' need for boys, or to spare them from the life they have in store.

Even still, 23% in Qatar seems ridiculously low. I do wonder if that's partly due to under-reporting because the women aren't considered people.

According to the Internets, it's the incoming contractors in oil and construction.
