An astonishing variation from fewer than 77 women per 100 men in parts of east Germany to many more in south west Wales and the south of France. Are young women gravitating to urban areas, or are young men going to Greece and Dresden? (Note that it's just one age bracket.)
Plus ... why do they show women per 100 men, not the other way round?
I notice that the insets include Guadeloupe, Martinique, Réunion and Guyane, which are French overseas departments, and which France regards as part of France and therefore of the European Union but the insets do not include several French semi-autonomous collectives such as French Polynesia that have a different legal status and are not part of the European Union (see European Union Member States).

It doesn't say anything about their sexual orientation though. All those women could be into other women.
They also put blue for males and pink for females. And what about all the intersexual people? I really think it's time we got over sex as a category at all.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
Totally - this has come as no surprise to me, I know several lovely women who can't meet anyone. They should move a few miles east, by the looks of it.
Seems to me that the region needs a decent ferry across the Bristol Channel.
And, what's the story on eastern Germany...what, Brandenburg and Prussia, right?
Isn't half of Prussia in Poland these days? Not sure about that, but that Eastern German area was until 1991(ish) (edit: 1990 you dolt) the much hailed Socialist Republic that had to built those endless fences and that infamous wall to make sure it's happy contend citizens (sorry, comrades/genossen) didn't forget how happy and contend they were and upon visiting the Western half, completely forgot to return to their totalitarian (sorry, democratic) Walhalla (sorry, Workers Paradise). Even with extensive spending by the German government after the Anschluss (sorry, reunification, went from Commie jokes to Nazi jokes all of a sudden) it's still a bit economically behind the continuously capitalist regions. I wonder if that has much to do with it.
