(Newser) – If you're a man looking for a lady, consider moving to Kershaw, Richland (South), and Calhoun counties in South Carolina, where there are 7.6 single women for every single man in the 30-39 demographic. Time went through 2011-2013 Census data to determine the ratio of unmarried ladies to unmarried guys in every region of the country, separating it out by demographic, into an interactive map you can access here. Some highlights—all of these numbers are for people with college degrees:

  • In Malibu and surrounding areas of California, the ratio is 1:1 in the 30-39 demographic. In the 18-29 demo, there are 1.1 single women per single man; 1.8 in the 40-49 demo; 1.7 in the 50-64 demo; and 1.9 in the 65+ demo.

  • In the South Shore, Hyde Park, and surrounding areas of Chicago, there are 1.9 single women for every single man in the 30-39 demo.
  • In Atlantic City, there are 1.7 single men for every single woman in the 30-39 demo. In the 18-29 demo, however, there are 1.1 single women for every single man, and 1.3 in the 40-49 demo.
  • In the northern part of the District of Columbia, there are 1.2 single women for every single man in the 30-39 demo.
If you change the map's filter to show the ratio of people without college degrees, the numbers change quite a bit. In most demographic categories, many areas have more degree-less men than degree-less women. Click to see how your neighborhood looks.
