molchanovdmitry/ iStockIn general, there are more women than men in each state.
  • Most US states have a higher percentage of women than men in their populations.
  • There are only 10 states that have more men than women, and they include Alaska, Wyoming, and Hawaii.
  • INSIDER collected the information from the US Census Bureau’s 2013-2017 American Community Survey Five-Year Estimates on American FactFinder.

There are only ten states in the US that have more men than women.

If you live in Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, or Wyoming, the Census Bureau’s 2013-2017 American Community Survey Five-Year Estimates, found on American FactFinder, shows that you live in one of the few states where men outnumber women.

In the other 40 states, women outnumber men by varying percentages. Alaska’s population is 52% male, making it the state with the most men and Delaware’s population in 51.6% female, making it the state with the most women.

The states that are closest to equal are Washington and Idaho. Washington just barely has more women, at 50.1% and Idaho has barely more men, at 50.1%.
