Iranian Males Outnumber Iranian Females in the US?

Iranian men women in the US

We made some interesting research on the Iranians living in the US. We took the number of Facebook users who speak Persian to have an idea about the Iranian female/male ratio.

Facebook Members Who Speak Persian
Ages Male Female Total Male/Female Ratio
18 – 65+ 65,000 45,000 110,000 1.44
18 – 25 20,000 14,000 34,000 1.43
26 – 35 23,000 15,000 38,000 1.53
36 – 45 9,200 6,700 15,900 1.37
46 – 55 5,600 4,700 10,300 1.19
56 – 65+ 6,200 4,200 10,400 1.48

Some interesting findings from this data which could be an indication of the demographics of the Iranian population in the US:

  • There is nearly 1.5 Iranian male for each female. This ratio is even higher in younger age groups.
  • It might also be related to the fact that Iranian society is more male dominant and males are more capable of travel abroad for studies or work.

We think this might not be giving the full picture about the whole Iranian community in the US but still gives some idea.
