Historic gender imbalance in favour of men in Sweden

From Daily Mail:

Sweden’s rapid shift to a male majority — which experts didn’t see coming just 10 years ago — has triggered debate among some feminists about the potential impact on women in one of the world’s most egalitarian countries.
Statistics officials say Sweden’s demographic shift is mainly due to men catching up with women in terms of life expectancy. But the arrival in recent years of tens of thousands of unaccompanied teenage boys from Afghanistan, Syria and North Africa is also having a significant impact.

Sweden’s biggest male surplus is in the 15-19 age group, where there are 108 boys for every 100 girls. That imbalance could grow to 115-to-100 this year when the impact of last year’s record number of asylum-seekers — including more than 35,000 unaccompanied minors — is reflected in the population statistics.

What’s happening in Sweden, Hudson said, “is one of the most dramatic alterations of demography over such a short period of time that I’ve ever seen.” She called it ironic that a country considered a beacon of women’s rights isn’t paying more attention to the issue.

Reality check: Could that be because one issue is sex selection abortions? Gendercide? We can’t know because comments have been disabled for the story.
