... So does that mean there were 2583 men for every woman?
So yeah, 2583:1 -- or some other ways to put it*...
- approximately 0.22% of the "female" accounts were real, (0.03% of the total user base) or
- roughly the same odds as winning $100 in the lottery, on a $5 ticket.
I've occasionally wondered how on earth sites such as these could possibly attract enough females to genuinely support any kind of a userbase, without hiring prostitutes or the like... I guess now we know the answer: They can't.
* That is, not involving football fields, as that's already been nicely covered by Tom.
