Although the odds are pretty close to dead even, statistically there is a slightly better chance that you are female rather than male. Breaking down the statistics for 2011, there are about 1.047 males born for every female born, and 1.04 males for every female under the age of 15. Once we pass 15, and staying under 64, we get a dead even 1:1 ratio, but after 65 there are only 0.75 males to every 1 female in the U.S. When we total that we find that there are 0.97 males for every 1 female in the U.S. today.
