Downtown Gender Gap

Brian-Kelsey-Web-e1342445205322(Community Matters) my friend Brian Kelsey of Civic Analytics:

According to the US Census Bureau, 62% of the approximately 6,800 people living downtown (defined here for convenience as 78701) in 2010 were male, compared to 51% for the city of Austin as a whole. In fact, men outnumber women between the ages of 30 and 59 by more than two-to-one. If you go back to 2000, the ratio jumps to more than three-to-one in some cases.
