Sweden's Growing Gender Imbalance

Cause for concern?

There is now a large gender imbalance within Sweden in the key young adult age groups. Take the 16-17 year old age bracket for instance; there are 123 males for every 100 females. This level of gender imbalance is unprecedented in Europe (and is actually higher than the same age bracket in China!).

Should the people of Sweden be concerned by this new demographic? Or is this a non-issue?

Maybe "Bride Importation" will be a new growth industry...

Nah no need for that. There are plenty of those Romanian Begger Chicks being imported in anyway, at-least they will have a use now!

In this area, those beggar chicks as you call them are more like old hens.

I find it more likely that these guys will, when they are old enough, chose a woman from their home countries like Afganistan or Syria. My guess is that they even will be able to change a dowry from the parents of these women, for offering their daughter a Swedish resident permit.

The Roma beggars from Romania are probably already married, or will be married, to one of their own kinsmen.

It's quite common that the young men are the first to emigrate, and then the women comes later, when the man has established himself and got a home and an income. It was the same when millions of Swedes emigrated to the US 100 years ago. The US probably had a gender imbalance during the late 1800's and early 1900's too, with more men than women. After the world wars there were probably a huge gender imbalance with a lot more women than men.
