The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SURS) is a treasure trove of regularly updated data on all aspects of the nation, and it’s well run website that more than repays time spent exploring it. 

Recently we’ve become fascinated with maps, as available on this page, and today we were drawn to something called the “femininity index”. Was this based on a self-reported Likert scale with regard to self-identified “femininity”, and – if so – how were the items phrased, and what were the trends between men and women in the results?

But it turns out we were overthinking the issue at hand, and this index simply describes the number of women per 100 men, a less interesting measure, to be sure, but one that could be measured with greater rigor. The results, in graphic form, are shown at the top of this story, while below is the transparency of the upper layer reduced somewhat, so you can see the place names underlying the data.
