S. Korean women to outnumber men by 2030: Data Updated: 2021-09-05 17:47:38 KST

In less than ten years, women in South Korea will outnumber men -- something that has not happened since the 70s, when accurate records were first kept.
According to the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, the average woman's healthy lifespan has increased by five years since the turn of the century, and it remains consistently above that of men.
At this rate, in 2030, there will be 99.8 men for every one hundred women.
The number of women living by themselves has also increased by more than two fold from 20 years ago, while the number of couples getting married for the first time decreased by almost 40 percent.
