Where The Singles Are

If you are a single man, you see a map like this and start checking the flight schedule to NYC.

But then you realize that there is one large caveat:

These maps (and the map of Singles, 35-64) show how single life is completely different between the sexes. Men are more likely to be single early in life as women on average marry three years earlier. Women are likely to be single at the end of their lives as they have a greater life expectancy and marry men that are older than they are.

Really cool interactive map of this data over at
