Wu Xiuming, deputy secretary-general of the Shanxi Think Tank Development Association, a non-governmental organisation in central China that specialises in social development research, has called for authorities to urgently address a rise in the number of unmarried people by encouraging the migration of urban single women to rural areas, where millions of unmarried men are looking for brides. Sharon Sun, a year-old single woman working in the real estate industry in Shanghai, said she would not consider rural men as potential partners. The average sex ratio at birth globally is about boys for every girls, according to the World Health Organisation. The gender imbalance is most acute in farming areas, where women have left to search for jobs and husbands in the cities. Highly educated and earning a decent living, single urban women are enjoying their independent status and not willing to jeopardise it by marrying and having children. In the age group, the ratio is men to every women, compared with men for every women in the age group.
