Mobile Users: If you are having issues using the interactive version of this visualization, you can find a static version here.
Last week, I was inspired by Reddit user, u/iturki27’s post of the “Worldwide Human Sex Ratio” to create a map that showed the gender ratio of the states and counties in the Continental U.S. While I was making that I realized that there are some major differences in the data if you control for age range. That is when I decided to make this graphic which shows the differences.
I used American Community Survey data which is compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau for my dataset. I gathered the 2011-2015 estimates from Table B01001 which can be found at American FactFinder. I then used Tableau to create the visualization.
