How many women are there in the world?

49.6% of the world population is represented by women

It is interesting to know that the number of men and women in the world is roughly equal.  Anyway, men hold a slight lead with 102 men for 100 women.  Statistics show that 50.4% of the world population is represented by men and 49.6%) is represented by women.  For every 100 girls, 107 boys are born.  The main problem is that males have a higher risk of dying than females, both in childhood and at adult ages.  Keep in mind the fact that the world population was estimated at 7.175 billion persons.
