France: female population 2004-2019

Female population in France from 2004 to 2019 (in millions)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
France: female population 2004-2019 In 2019 the female population in France amounted to 34.6 million. Like most of other European countries, France has a female population larger than its male population.
Female population in France

According to the source, the female population in France is increasing since 2004. That year there were more than 32 million women in France, compared to 34.1 million ten years later. Surprisingly, the total number of male births has always been higher than the total number of female births. However, life expectancy in the country is higher for women and the proportion between men and women in France appear to stabilize over time.

Women live longer than men

Studies have shown that the life expectancy at birth was higher than females than for male. In 2018, a baby boy born in France had a life expectancy of 79.5 years, while it reached 85.4 years for a baby girl. In Europe, as well, as in France, life expectancy gap between men and women is a consistent trend. Health issues and a riskier lifestyle could explain why women outlive men. In 2018, Madrid was the European area where both men and women have the longest life expectancy. It reached 87.8 years for females and 82.2 for males.
