Pre Release Question 7

Question 7
Q7) Which gender tends to live longer ? Which gender tends to be born more often ? Any reasons ?

A7) There are slightly more boys born than girls, but women then outlive men. The ratios are fairly close, but given the large numbers of people involved, this results in an uneven spread of the sexes in the older age groups.
Various reasons why women live longer ?
Hormones / genetics - related to ability to carry children ?
Lifestyle ?

Thanks also to Mr. Flaxman of the Super Hoops blog for getting in touch and sending me some pre-release materials which I will add to here before too long, and also to the website.
