In the network, you can find many publications about the shortage of women in some countries. In Scandinavian countries, for example, Norway lacks about 12,000 women for a balanced gender distribution. However, after analyzing the data, it turned out that the situation is much worse in Asia, as well as in countries on the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. In Europe, there is no demographic imbalance as such; the shortage is rather caused by societal development, the emancipation of women receiving good education, and migrating in search of better living conditions, which deprives some men of the opportunity to find a partner. In Asia and the Arab world, this is often a demographic and cultural problem associated with a preference for male heirs.
