Why do females continue to outnumber males in the older brackets on population pyramids for the United States?


I'm looking for scientific or historical reasons, like specific wars or anything like that, that might have affected especially the male population for those generations...?

    The male gene is dieing. 1 in 7 babys are boys. So look at like this 6 in 7 babys are girls. Oh one last thing we all start out as girls thats why we all have nipples.

    The wars we have been through, WW2 and Vietnam both took a great toll of males.

    becuase males lives are harder.... riskier

    more is expected of them.... men are the ones that lead.

    War:...Gulf war, Vietnam war, Korean war, World war 2, World war 1

    The male gene isnt going anywhere.... we have more force and we will continue to lead... we are the head.

    I honestly have no clue.

    It's like the male gene is getting significantly weaker and weaker.
