In many parts of world, Men are still dominate in the Population if we caompare it to women. But the same words cannot be said for Russia, as there women more in numbers by men with a he amount of 10 Million …!!

According to survey of Russian Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat) in 2018, there were about 78.8 million of  Women in Russia as Compared to Men whose Population is Millions fewer than women 68.1 million. These statistics also calculates that Russian women will almost more in number count by men in 2036 in all of the Regions except in Chukotka, a region located in the Far East part of Russia. While this number count may be surprising, the Gender imbalance is unfortunately not a new issue in the country as it has been started for more than a century ago, (round about in 1897). Apparently, a census done in 1897 Recorded that were 33.8 million women and 32.1 million men in Russia and the Gap has been widening Ever Since. However, unlike in some Asian countries where sex selection is what causes gender imbalance to occur, the gender imbalance in Russia happens because of Wars  and infectious Diseases which affect more men than women. The Population of women in Russia started to Rise at the beginning of WWI where there were 91.9 men for every 100 women in Russia. As the country went through Major Catastrophic events like the Russian civil war, famine and the Great Terror in the Soviet Union, the number of men kept Falling. During WWII alone, Russia Lost over 25 million soldiers, all of whom were men. The war Caused the ratio of male to female in the Soviet Union to be even more Unbalanced with the ratio of 81.9 men for every 100 women. While more newborn boys are born each year compared to Girls, Baby Boys are more susceptible to infectious Diseases and fatal health complications. At the moment, Russia has already seen more women in the workforce with 72% of them working as civil servants, making the country is technically run by women.
