What is the ideal demographic ratio between men and woman?


Actual topic is demographics. So dear staff of yahoo, can you add a category regarding demographics?

Update 2:

There is no intent to kill. And it never will be.

    No ideal ratio but nature seems to think that males are more likely to imperil themselves, thus usually goes for around 105 males to 100 females.

    About 20 years ago, in the city of Liverpool in England, the ratio suddenly (over a period of a year or so) increased to around 112 males per 100 females. The phenomenon was eventually traced to a new source of domestic water supply coming on stream, which obviously contained certain chemicals.

    Ideal for what?  Do you plan on killing some category to "correct" the situation?

    We know that for people under 50 or so, the ratio is about 1:1. More boys than girls are born, by the age of 23 or so it evens out, and in the elderly groups women are in the majority.
