Sex ratio in Australia 2018 by city area

With 110.9 men per one hundred women in the city, the Greater Darwin area in Australia has the highest sex ratio. This is in stark contrast to the demographics of the other major cities in Australia which have more women than men. This is consistent with the fact that the population has always had more women than men.

Gender in the workplace

Australia has a high labor force participation rate of women with more than two thirds of all women between 25 and 64 participating in the workforce.Despite this fact, there is still some disparity between men and women in high level position as men dominate the number of key management personnel in all industries except for health care and social assistance.

Gender and crime

Crimes against gender also differ significantly in Australia as women are multiple times more likely to be sexually assaulted while men are much more likely to be victims of murder.The perpetrators of crimes are also much more likely to be men as there are ten times more male prisoners then women.The constant increase in crime over the years has been a cause for concern among the nation’s citizens.
