The Sex in the City Effect?

Check out this link. It is a map of the U.S. showing regions in the country where either Men or Women greatly outnumber the other.

The northeast, especially around New York, retains a heavy concentration of women.

Texas and Cali. men dominate.

NYC has more than 200,000 more women then men.

Perhaps this is because more women view moving to New York is some kind of status symbol?
Perhaps this is because more women like New York then men?
Perhaps this is because women like the fantasy of a small town girl trying to make it in the big city?
Perhaps this is all above the above because Sex in the City is all of these things.

I don't know....
Anybody have a thought on this?

Note that there are 40k more men than women in Austin. If gay men and women are excluded, what does the ratio become?

My thoughts on the New York shift, probably the belief that rich men are in NY and poor men are in TX. Thus, women are drawn to NY to complete the Mrs. degree. But those are just my sexist views.

Ugh i certainly hope that women aren't moving to NYC because of Sex and the City. Who could honestly find that appealing? I sure as hell don't want to end up in my late thirties, sleeping around with man after man, while secretly, or not so secretly, obsessing over one who treats me like crap and strings me along for years. What kind of sick, twisted fantasy is that? Seriously, girls, WAKE UP!
