News & Observer story on declining number of men in North Carolina features CPC Fellow Cohen's insight

Jul 27, 2011

A recent article in the News & Observer discussed North Carolina's changing male population. In the past, North Carolina typically experienced a surplus of boys yet a deficit of men over age 35. Within the article, CPC Fellow Philip Cohen said the surplus of boys was "apparently evolution's answer to the fact that, as the weaker sex, males die more often at all ages." However, the 2010 Census results reveal that fewer boys are being born and there is now a deficit of males over age 25. This differs from the rest of the country and may be partially due to such factors as migration and military deployments. To find out more about these factors and the changing male population, read the full story here.
