According to wickipedia there are 1.07 men born for every 1 woman on planet earth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...s_by_sex_ratio The current average gender ratio is 1.01. Out of a planet population of over 7 billion how many more men have died in total & per year in order to achieve the current gender ratio? (mainly yearly as the total number seems to be 420,000,000 (7,000,000,000 x 0.06) which should probably be divided by the average age of someone on the planet (around 30) Which would give 14 million per year. I may need to divide that number by 2 but I am not sure. I don't think so. This also obviously ignores the increase in population but I am not sure if that will give a larger or smaller number if you factor that into the equation. Also the WHO states there are 5.8 million deaths worldwide due to accidents & violence with men being almost twice as likely to be killed. Injuries and WHO  Injuries and violence: the facts That means around 1.9 million women, 3.9 million men. With a 2 million excess. What percentage of these overall deaths is due to accidents & violence compared to other factors such as discrimination in healthcare & cancer spending etc. Ideally a yearly breakdown on how many more men die than women & what percentage is based on accidents & violence. I understand that besides injury & violence there are a huge number of other factors like suicide, exposure to toxic chemicals, etc. I just want to know an overall number with a % for injury & violence. Also I understand that its most likely going to be an average number calculated across something like the average lifespan of someone on earth, although I am not 100% sure if that is the correct way of calculating it. It would be helpful if someone could explain the best mathematical formula for working this out as well & make sure I am getting it right.
