Dear 100 Hour Board,
Which metropolitan areas in Texas have more single LDS guys than single LDS gals? Specifically, the late 20's to mid 30's age range.
I decided to do some analytics with public Facebook groups for Mid-Singles in Texas.
I put on an Alternative Hits from 2013 playlist on iTunes, copied a few hundred names from the Austin group to get a decent sized sample, and assigned their gender. I was genuinely shocked at the results:
That's right, at my arbitrary cutoff point, the gender ratio was exactly equal.
I selected a smaller sample from Houston, and got 22 women to 18 men. In Dallas, it was 20 women to 20 men.
My data does not account for those who are in relationships, inactive LDS, or in the older half of the age range. Still, I was surprised that my convenience sample brought up almost perfect gender parity.
