If you’re wondering why you’re single on Valentine’s Day, know that chance and demographics, and not your character or looks, might be to blame. But don’t worry, data could have the answer, and help you plan wisely your next holiday destination. Here’s what the United Nations DESA report on the Marital Status of Men and Women around the World (2013) has to say.

I took the report’s statistics on the martial status of single man and women in each age group and in each country, and calculated the “Single Gap”. The “Single Gap” is the percentage point difference between the percentage of single women and the percentage of single man. So to make it clear: a bigger “Single Gap” value will indicate that there are many more single women than man..and that competition might be quite harsh for all the single ladies.

Use this index to discover in which countries demographics and statistics might be on your side in this Darwinian struggle!

The average “Single Gap” for all age groups is negative in only 11 out of 187 countries. In all other words: there are really few places in the world where the number of single women is higher than that of single men!

Age however has a big impact on these values. If we disaggregate the “Single Gap”, women in their 20s are the ones more likely to have a hard time finding a partner. On a worldwide average, the percentage of single women 20–24 is 21 percentage points higher than men in the same age group, and 17 percentage points higher for women 25–29. There are big national differences though. Qatar has almost the same percentage of singles of both sexes…while single men in Senegal have quite a large mating pool to choose from.

As women exit their most fertile years however, demographics gradually come on their side, and the “single gap” decreases. Around the age of 45, the percentage point difference between worldwide singles of the two sexes reaches 0. From age 55 one the “single gap” tends to have negative values, representing how, finally, the percentage of single men start to be higher than the percentage of single women.

Important Disclaimer: the status “Single” refers to individuals who were never married. It wasn’t possible to interpret this value as to include also divorced/widowed individuals.

Source: The UN DESA World Marriage DataDefinitions: “Population distribution by marital status is the percentage distribution of the population in a given age group by the different marital status categories. Marital status is the personal status of each individual in relation to the marriage laws or customs of a country. The categories of marital status presented in World Marriage Data 2012 are: (1) single (never married); (2) married; (3) widowed and not remarried; (4) divorced and not remarried; and (5) married but separated.”
