On the eve of Defender of the Fatherland Day, Kemerovostat shared data on the male population of the Kemerovo region.
According to available data, at the beginning of 2019, the number of men in the region amounted to 1,228.2 thousand people. At the same time, there were about 1177 women per 1000 males, according to the territorial body of the Federal State Statistics Service in the Kemerovo region.
- The numerical excess of women over men in the population is observed from the age of 35 and increases with age. This unfavorable ratio has developed due to the continuing high level of premature mortality in men, - said the statisticians.
In addition, at the beginning of last year, among men, about a fifth (21.9%) of the total number, namely 268.9 thousand people, were young people under 16 years old. There were 206,700 males of retirement age (16.8%). More than half - 752.6 thousand men (61.3%) were of working age.
The average age for the male population was 36.8 years. It is noted that the average female age in the region is 42.2 years.
