2,2 million women of different age live in Bashkortostan. These are 53 percent of the population.

The average gender ratio is 1139 women to 1000 men. Thus in younger age group – under 16 years – boys numerically surpass girls: 1000 and 961, accordingly. At able-bodied age from 16 to 59 years the ratio changes: 1000 men to 1069 women. In the senior group numeric gap increases: 1000 and 1824.

Average-expectancy life of women in Bashkortostan is 75,2 years. Our ladies live longer than men (63,1), but less than women in the developed countries. For example, Frenchwomen and Swede live on average 83-84 years, Japanese – almost 86 years.

In technical colleges the share of girls constitutes only 35 percent.
