I’m still looking at census results
Although there’s a high margin of error for these stats, the most interesting thing I see is that Fremont’s male/female ratio is out of whack among the youth.
If you do a little math using the census figures you’ll find that there are way more boys than girls under the age of 18.
Here are the figures or Fremont’s 17 and under population
Boys: 27,806 (58 percent)
Girls: 20,227 (42 percent)
The odds of having a boy child in industrialized nations is 51.2 percent.
Let’s look at Berkeley’s 17 and under population. It’s much more even:
male 7,314 (50.45 percent)
female 7,183 (49.55 percent)
Same with the City of Alameda’s 17 and under population
male 7,036 (51.6 percent)
female 6,592 (48.4 percent)
It’s interesting. But there’s not enough data to draw any conclusions from these numbers, which, again, are not as precise as what we’ll see when the actual census is released early next year. Nevertheless, I’ll be curious to see school enrollment data from Fremont Unified.
Overall, Fremont has a less overwhelming male majority across all age groups
Males 108,586 (52.8 percent)
Females 96,935 (47.2 percent)
However, there are a lot more old women in Fremont than old men
For the age 65 and older population:
Males 9,443 (43.9 percent)
Females 12,052 (56.1 percent)
