Summary
"Where are all the eligible men? At birth, there are actually more boys than girls: 1.05 boys born in the U.S. for every 1 girl. But fast-forward twenty years to a singles bar in New York and the world looks very different. In Manhattan, there are 38% more young female college graduates than their male counterparts. In Los Angeles, it's 37%. In Washington, 49% and in Miami, 86%. In the U.S. overall, there are four women for every three men. So where did all the extra men go? Actually, it's where they didn't go: college. As Date-onomics shows, this demograhic time bomb started ticking in the 1960s, when the pill, along with feminism, gave women newfound freedom to pursue a life outside of marriage, and in 1970s with Title IX, which pried open the doors to unprecedented female enrollment in colleges. And once those barriers fell, the natural developmental differences between boys and girls took care of the rest. Just look at the gender ratio of most colleges and universities: It's currently 57% female to 43% male. At first glance, that might not sound like so much but it's one third more women than men"--Front cover flap

Summary
The shortage of college-educated men is not just a big-city phenomenon frustrating women in New York and L.A. Among young college grads, there are four eligible women for every three men nationwide. This unequal ratio explains not only why it’s so hard to find a date, but a host of social issues, from the college hookup culture to the reason Salt Lake City is becoming the breast implant capital of America. Then there’s the math that says that a woman’s good looks can keep men from approaching her—particularly if they feel the odds aren’t in their favor
