• In this Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013 file photo, Sweden fans pose with a Swedish flag before the World Cup qualifying soccer match between Sweden and Portugal in Stockholm, Sweden. For the first time since record-keeping began in 1749, Sweden now has more men than women.

The tipping point in Sweden happened in March 2015, when population statistics showed 277 more men than women.  (AP Photo/Frank Augstein, file)
