MO census: more females than males

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (AP) -

Missouri has more boys than girls,

but there are more women than men.

New Census Bureau figures from last year's count show 51 percent

of the state's nearly 6 million residents were female.

But the proportions varied among age groups.

Males outnumbered females from ages 1 to 22, but the reverse was

true for those 25 through 29. Men in the 30 to 34 age group

outnumbered women, but there were more women than men from the

mid-30s onward.

The disparity was most clear among older Missourians.

Of those aged 70 to 74, there were 100 women for every 85 men;

and of those at least 100 years old, there were 995 women and 171

men.
