SF’s Chinatown, which the racial dot map and Wikipedia point to as to the upper right of the word “San Francisco,” is actually far more gender-neutral than similar immigrant communities we found in NYC. Right over the bay, Oakland mixes it up a bit while Berkeley is a nice little gender melting pot.
Remember that time I was blasting a startup for shipping single women from NYC to San Francisco?
And about how I had all of this cool data that showed that there were actually more single men in New York, and they were probably just hiding indoors playing video games?
Note: This is all fiercely heteronormative, and I’m sorry about that, but such is the data bestowed by the US Census Bureau.
If you’d like to see a hilarious side effect of this, scroll down to the last image. Very much the opposite of what we found about New York, where the core of Manhattan was primarily single women.
Among the 26,939 users with a UK email address, for example, there are just 1,596 who identified as female: a ratio of one woman to every 16 men.
