In Black population centres in the USA, adult sex ratios ASRs are strongly female-biased primarily due to high male incarceration and early mortality rates. I explore the system of social determinants that shape these ASRs, and describe their apparent consequences. Evidence suggests that female-biased ASRs play a role, along with racial residential segregation, to increase mixing between core and peripheral members of sexual networks, facilitating transmission of human immunodeficiency virus and other sexually transmitted infections.

Unique historical factors underlie Black male incarceration and mortality rates in the USA, making comparisons with other groups or other countries challenging. Qualitative research during the s and s suggested that some Black men and women perceived that women were disempowered in their heterosexual relationships with men because relatively few men were available to them for potential romantic relationships or marriage [ 11 — 14 ]. Historical demographic research suggests that national and regional ASRs can become unbalanced due to wars, sex-selective migration and extreme environmental conditions [ 20 ].

Recent advances in ultrasound technology have also enabled sex-selective abortion, resulting in more male-biased sex ratios at birth in some areas, particularly in Asia [ 21 ]. In addition to early mortality, male scarcity arises in contemporary US Black population centres due to high rates of male incarceration [ 1522 — 24 ]. The ASR reaches its highest recorded level, By contrast, the Black population ASR is female-biased.

Below, known or pd causes and consequences of unbalanced sex ratios in the USA are described in greater detail. Table 1. For comparability with research in the US ASRs are calculated as the of men per women in the 15—49 age group, after removing the populations estimated to be living in state or federal prisons.

Eo sex interracial sex ratio at birth in the US Black population is less male-biased than that of the White population [ 29 ]. While the national sex ratio for Black births has increased in recent decades, it is still substantially lower than that for White births [ 29 ].

In the Black sex ratio at birth was Thus, the sex ratio in the Black population begins to differ from that of the White population at birth, and perhaps prenatally. Some evidence suggests that higher Black single-parent birth rates, lower socioeconomic status, and stress related to discrimination may partly explain this disparity, given that stress is more likely to harm or lead to the prenatal death of males than females [ 3132 ].

It is unclear to what extent the less male-biased sex ratio at birth in the Black population contributes to the female-biased Black ASR. Despite large decreases in death rates and increases in lifespans from the nineteenth century to the present, the mortality gap between Black and White populations in the USA have remained wide [ 33 ].

Stress related to poverty and discrimination may contribute to infant mortality, particularly for boys [ Eo sex interracial — 37 ]. Human males exhibit greater mortality than females throughout the lifespan for biological and social reasons [ 31 ]. Male—female death rate ratios of Blacks greatly exceed those of Whites in the 15—29 age range, with that for Blacks peaking at 3. The male—female death rate ratio for Whites peaks at 2. Figure 1. Data are from National Vital Statistics Reports [ 38 ]. The main cause of differences in death rates between adolescent and young adult males who are White and those who are Black is the differential homicide rate.

Homicide is the leading cause of death for Black males ages 15 through 34, while homicide is the third leading cause of death for White males aged 15—24, and the fifth leading cause of death for White males aged 25—34 [ 38 ]. The age-adjusted death rate for homicide among Black males was Inthe homicide death rate for Black females was 4.

Even so, HIV disease remains among the top six leading causes of death for Black males across ages 20—54 [ 38 ]. For comparison, HIV disease is a leading cause of death for White males in only two age ninth among those aged 35—44 and 10th among those aged 45— Military service generally removes individuals from their residential locations for the duration of their service, which can contribute to lower ASRs Eo sex interracial those locations and higher ASRs around military bases.

Black male enlistment in US military service has declined since the early s, but Black men remain slightly overrepresented in the military [ 4142 ]. Roughly 1. It is possible that the presence of large gay communities may bias ASRs. It may be inferred that large cities can attract gays and lesbians, with some, such as New York, acting as gay enclaves.

In urban areas, the ASR can reflect employment opportunity differences between men and women.

This was observed by W. In this seminal work, Du Bois conducted a survey and census of Black residents of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Table 1 shows the ASR for this population.

The differences in employment opportunities between Black men and women were apparent even while slavery was ongoing. Thus, to Du Bois, female-biased ASRs among Black residents of urban areas reflected a system of racial discrimination, targeted more intensely at men. The potential effects of employment discrimination on internal migration and contemporary Black ASRs are less clear. Although racial discrimination in housing and employment were prohibited by the Civil Rights Act of [ 46 ] and the federal Fair Housing Act of [ 47 ], evidence suggests that these forms of discrimination remain prevalent [ 48 — 50 ].

In the USA, counties and states where Black populations are relatively small e. However, these states do not systematically have higher than average Black employment rates [ 51 ]. Nationally representative American Community Survey data show that about 4. However, most of these moves are housing-related rather than job-related, with Blacks moving more often for housing At the same time, recent research suggests that Blacks who move between the North and South enjoy ificantly higher gains in relative social position than Whites making Eo sex interracial same moves, even though they do not make absolute employment gains [ 54 ].

Genders are relatively balanced among African migrants to the USA, with men slightly outing women [ 55 ]. With migration rising sharply sinceover 1. This does not include jail populations that typically house inmates with sentences shorter than 1 year. As of1 in 3 Black males in the USA could expect to become incarcerated during their lifetimes, compared with 1 in 17 White males [ 61 ], although these rates may have declined since the national incarceration rate peaked in [ 62 ].

Blacks at every level of wealth are more likely to become incarcerated than Whites or Hispanics [ 63 ]. Youth from affluent Black families have about the same likelihood of becoming incarcerated as youth from the poorest White families [ 63 ]. The extent to which the high rate of incarceration among Black men affects ASRs is evident when comparing total US population ASRs with those calculated after removing the prison population. Most prisons are not located in urban areas. In fact, in many states' prisoners are often incarcerated in locations hundreds of miles from their homes [ 64 ].

This has the effect not only of destabilizing the family connections of those imprisoned, but also of transferring political power from urban minority areas to rural non-minority areas. Prisoners are counted by the Census as residing in the locations of the prisons, and these data are used to apportion political representation [ 6566 ]. For example, because there are relatively few prisoners in Philadelphia, removing them from Census data in an ASR in the Black population that is only slightly lower Notably, of the approximately non-incarcerated Black women in this age range in Philadelphia inabout 1 in 6 However, since the early s some states and the Federal Government have reformed sentencing guidelines and related policies.

These reforms will potentially lead to lower overall prison populations and potentially to more balanced Black ASRs. The national incarceration rate and the national homicide rate have both fallen from their peaks in the s and s [ 6269 ]. The study of sexual and reproductive behaviour among the Black US population is greatly complicated by the abusive history of medical and scientific research on Blacks during the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Most scientific writing about Blacks during this period included biased and false reports intended to justify slavery and subjugation [ 70 ].

More recent examples, including the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, which denied treatment and accurate health information to poor rural Black sharecroppers even after penicillin was validated as a treatment for syphilis, have led to deep and somewhat warranted suspicions of medical and scientific researchers [ 71 ]. In describing associations of ASRs, it is important to ensure that the dignity and agency of people in historically oppressed minority groups are respected.

The decisions to enter into and maintain sexual and romantic partnerships are based on complex factors that may have little or nothing to do with ASRs. The female-biased ASR in the Black population does not represent excess women; rather, it represents men who are not present, evidence suggests, largely because they have died prematurely or have been imprisoned. The scarcity of Black men can affect the relative bargaining power of women and men in heterosexual relationships, and can affect rates of marriage and cohabitation, and sexual network composition and STI transmission.

These consequences are described in greater detail below. Male scarcity is hypothesized to effect heterosexual behaviour by impacting dyadic power in male—female partnerships [ 20 ]. The idea that the ASR can help to shape sexual relationships is consistent with Social Exchange Theory, which suggests that satisfaction with relationships depends on prior expectations, comparison with alternatives, and investments made in the relationship [ 207273 ].

These evaluations may or may not be made explicitly. Applied to sexual relationships, Social Exchange Theory is modelled on an economic market where individuals seek sexual and romantic partners, and dyadic sexual partnerships exist as part of a loosely integrated market with other Eo sex interracial and dy [ 74 ]. In this regard, Social Exchange Eo sex interracial can be contextualized by considering the Theory of Gender and Power, which describes the power imbalance that occurs at different levels of social organization including families, institutions, Eo sex interracial, communities, cultures and societies [ 75 — 77 ].

Major social structures that characterize relationships between men and women are the sexual division of labour, the sexual division of physical and psychological power, and the structure of intimate relationships, including social behavioural and relationship norms. In addition, gender asymmetry in prostitution, cultural suppression of female sexuality, rape and sexual attitudes reflect complementary economic roles for men Eo sex interracial women [ 76 ].

Potential male—female differences in motivations and efforts required to be in a relationship may be enhanced by social and cultural systems that limit alternative means for women to obtain resources [ 76 ]. In this context, a scarcity of potential male partners can be viewed as operating according to laws of supply and demand to further increase the bargaining power of men and further reduce the bargaining power of women in male—female partnerships. In the USA, people who are married or living as married are less likely to have multiple and concurrent sex partners than those who are not [ 7879 ].

Female-biased ASRs have been found to be associated with the relatively low marriage rate and the relatively high non-marital birth rate in the US Black population [ 4 — 982 — 84 ]. While condom use can prevent HIV and STI transmission, the of sex partners is a key indicator for transmission potential [ 8687 ].

Research suggests that in the USA condom use drops precipitously in new sexual partnerships after about three weeks [ 88 ]. Although people who are aware they are HIV-positive tend to use condoms consistently with their uninfected partners, many HIV-positive individuals are unaware of their HIV status [ 89 ]. Nationally representative data from the National Survey of Family Growth show that more Black women 3. At the same time, more Black women 9. By contrast, data from Eo sex interracial are consistent with female-biased ASRs enabling men to accrue more female sex partners on average.

More Black men A social network represents interactions between and among people. A network of sexual contacts is an example of a social network [ 93 ]. Research suggests that people have relatively little control over their position in a social network; rather, networks arise from geographic, cultural and familial contexts in the place of residence [ 94 ]. Social networks tend to be homophilous i. Uninfected members of sexual networks that have a high infection prevalence carry substantial risk for becoming infected themselves [ 9798 ].

Individuals with many sex partners are at the core of a sexual network, while individuals with only one sex partner can be described as being on the periphery [ 99 ]. Female-biased Black ASRs in the county of residence are associated with more Black men having five or more female partners in the past year, which is one definition of being a core network member [ 15 ]. However, ecological studies may be vulnerable to ecological inference fallacy wherein trends observed at the aggregate level can differ from those at the individual levelincomplete control for confounding and multicollinearity.

Some studies have used sexual behaviour i. ificant associations have been observed in qualitative studies [ 1317, ], computational modelling [ ] and geographically nested individual-level studies [ 1618 ]. Independent effects of incarceration rates and ASRs have also been demonstrated, although these analyses are complicated by the lack of control for the rate and locations of prisoner release [ 59 ].

Although national surveys are not deed to assess ASR-related hypotheses, comparisons with national HIV incidence data may be informative. As shown in figure 2most HIV infections among women are attributed to heterosexual contact, and more than twice as many Eo sex interracial women have been infected through heterosexual contact than White and Hispanic women combined in recent years. More Black men also have been infected through heterosexual contact than White and Hispanic men combined, but almost twice as many Black women as Black men were infected through heterosexual contact.

This pattern is consistent with sexual network structures that put uninfected Black women at the periphery in contact with infected Black men at the core [ 80 ]. Further, female-biased ASRs are associated with more Black men being core network members [ 15 ]. Figure 2. Partnerships between individuals who differ on important characteristics can be described as negatively assortative or disassortative.
