There is hardly a school district with more females than males.

Why?

Is it a demographic anomaly that we have more young males than females?

Is the dropout rate higher among females in general? Is it because of teen pregnancy, drug use, girls being forced to stay home and take care of things?

Is the dropout rate higher among females that are ethnic minority, especially Hispanic females?

This is too weird that nearly all 41 school districts have more males than females and some by a large measure. I thought the creator made males and females at about 50% each.

Maybe some investigative reporting is in order. Maybe something is going on here that meets some reporting...

Howard, I don't see how your comment matches up with the list of Utah players, however, just for the record, the ratio of female to male births depends on the geography being considered. The US has more male births than females, by a small ratio, while eastern Europe has more females than males. If you Google your question, you will see that opinions about this vary quite a bit, so it would be best to do that and find the answer you seek.
