2. According to Statistics, You’re More Likely to Have a Boy than a Girl!
Since 1940, the number of boys born have been more than the number of girls born every year in the United States. While a few countries have higher girl rates, the overall world rate is in favor of boys. In the U.S. an average of 91,685 more boys have been born than girls. Some scientists believe that it is nature evening the odds, since males are more likely to die earlier than girls, while others think nature is thinking about a possible food shortage, since females tend to need more energy (thus needing more food) in childbirth. One researcher believes that your position to the equator may affect what you have, since it seems there are higher rates of girls closer to the equator. Whatever the cause, it’s a fact that there are more boys born every year than girls. I find this interesting, though, since it seems our total female population outnumbers the male population. Weird, huh?
