The United States Singles Map
The biggest problem in finding a date these days is that all the single men live on the west coast and all the single women live on the east coast. The next biggest problem is that all the single men are young and all the single women are of a more mature age.
The U.S. Singles Map shows the number of single men and women in metropolitan statistical areas (major cities and their suburbs). The map allows you to adjust the age of the results displayed on the map with a simple slider control.
The map reveals that single men far outnumber single women in nearly every city in America. Which means it should be fairly easy for single women to find a date. The situation does change however when you adjust the ages displayed on the map. It seems that there are far more mature single women than there are mature single men.
Over half of the adult population in England and Wales are single. Islington in London is the best place to go if you are on the look out for an unmarried date. In this London borough almost two out of three men and 57% of the women are single. If you are single in East Devon you should definitely catch the train up to London. In East Devon three quarters of all the men and more than 80% of women are married.
The UK's Office for National Statistics has produced a number of Google Maps visualizing data from the UK census. The Single People in England and Wales map displays the number of adult singles in each census tract in England and Wales. You can click on any census tract on the map to view the percentages of single men and women in the area and compare this figure to the national average.
